in News by

On Saturday, June 17th, the public can get a free look at some of Kingston’s most interesting places.

Event coordinator, Sue Hitchcock, says Doors Open Kingston can be used as a good excuse to get out and explore our city, adding that “Kingston has so much to offer and seeing these places is a great way to connect with, and learn about, the role these sites play in shaping the Kingston of today and tomorrow.”

Check out the Rembrandt paintings at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, take a peek into the future at the Queen’s Solar Education Centre’s solar house, or get some background info on the penitentiary scenes in the upcoming “Alias Grace” mini-series (that were filmed in Kingston) at Canada’s Penitentiary Museum, and much more.

Most of the below locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 pm.
