Correctional Service Of Canada Museum, Kingston Reviews
Nice place with lots of info and very cool historical items to look at with somewhat detailed descriptions. Spent about half an hour in the museum and especially enjoyed the room where shanks and contraband delivery methods were displayed. The "gift shop" leaves something to be desired. Some areas are cramped but otherwise the museum is very interesting. Definitely recommend checking it out.
Surprised by how many items they have. We all enjoyed it. (Adults and kids 6-12). Would recommend visiting the museum to friends.
Interesting and original items. Some history as well and a good glimpse into life behind bars and some people who lived this life on both sides. Enjoy. Free admission, there is a souvenir shop and they would appreciate donations.
A cool place to check out if you go to the Kingston pen for the tour as its right across the road. Also staff/volunteers know their stuff and you learn a lot from them.
small place, you don't really get to see what it's like present day but you do get to see it historically.
