John Fisher Memorial Museum
The John Fisher Memorial Museum is open for the 2023 season. Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM.
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 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 2023 summer exhibit is "More Than A Museum" celebrating the 50 year anniversary of our organization, Kingston Peninsula Heritage.
