  • Super-friendly, knowledgeable staff. We had a nice visit to the Pump House Steam Museum. It's not a huge museum so you could probably spend less than two hours there. We arrived at the end of the day so only had one hour. The model railroad section is great for younger children. Press a few buttons to watch the trains whiz around the tracks. It was interesting to learn about Kingston's bid to become the capital of Canada and the need for a steam-powered water pumping system. There are some interactive exhibits and we saw a Kingston Believe it or Not exhibit with fun facts about Kingston's early history. It was well worth the visit!
  • Fun place to visit the huge engine! Really cool :)
  • Check it out for 2017 they have a beleave it or not exhibition you learn lots and my husband loved the train exhibit
  • Nice people. Lot of stuff for kids. Not expensive
  • The children and I loved it...we went back 3 times during our holidays!
