John Fisher Memorial Museum
The John Fisher Memorial Museum was established in 1982 and depicts many of the aspects of life on the Kingston Peninsula. From Wolastoqiyik basket work to the tools and clothing of early settlers the museum displays many local artifacts. Each year the summer exhibit portrays topics of local interest including history and local artists. The past summer (2019) gallery was an art gallery feautring work by Judith Baxter. The next summer (2020) gallery is to be announced!
The museum is named in honour of John Fisher, a celebrated CBC broadcaster and publicist. From 1943 to 1955, he traveled throughout the country, broadcasting its wonders on "John Fisher Reports", a popular program heard three times a week on the national radio system. He became affectionately known as "Mr. Canada" by many in the nation.
The museum is housed in the basement of the local MacDonald Consolidated School, in Kingston. It is open in July and August, Tuesday to Saturday (10am-4pm/9am-4pm Saturdays) and is accessable by appointment by phone (506) 763-2101 or messaging our facebook page.
