AAA Editor Notes
Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston, 5 blks. w. of City Hall at 55 Ontario St., is in the 18th-century dry dock buildings along Kingston's historic waterfront. Exhibits about shipbuilding and shipwrecks and artifacts, engines and tools illustrate Great Lakes maritime history, along with The Marine Superhighway: The Story of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway.
Also displayed is the 3,000-metric-ton (3,300-ton) icebreaker Alexander Henry; today the ship's cabins accommodate bed and breakfast guests. A library and archives are open upon request.
Note: The museum is closed for relocation; the move will be underway until at least 2018. Phone ahead.
