The Museum of Health Care will open its door to participate in Doors Open Kingston 2021.
This Doors Open event features two types of tours – outdoor walking tour and a special inside tour peeking at the galleries and the collections rooms! All tours are FREE to the public.
Outdoor Guided Walking Tour: Walk in the footsteps of some of Kingston’s earliest residents and arrivals as they engage in a quest for health care in the Limestone City. The story of establishment of one of Canada’s oldest public hospitals, Kingston General Hospital, is one full of success and sacrifice, triumph and tragedy. Join us for a fascinating look into the lives of those that lived, arrived and died here, as we unlock the secrets of Kingston’s medical history. This tour is 1.5 hours in length. Maximum of 12 guests. Runs rain or shine.
Indoor Self-Guided Gallery Tour and Guided Collections Tour: A guide will introduce you to the Ann Baillie Building and the Museum galleries, and give you tour of the seldom seen collections rooms. 1 hour in length. 5 guests max.
Please remember to bring an appropriate face mask or covering as recommended by the Kingston Public Health Unit. A small supply of masks will be available for each tour and hand sanitizer for your use.
Tours are scheduled from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, September 25 and 10:00am-1:00pm, Sunday, September 26th.
