Built in 1846 as part of the defensive Martello tower fortifications of Kingston, the Murney tower has a museum of 3 floors displaying a collection of military and domestic artifacts of 19th-century Kingston. Built to complement the mighty fortifications of Fort Henry, it was designed to concentrate fire on Gardiners Island. Constructed out of limestone, Murney Tower has incredibly thick walls that were common in fortresses of the time. It’s interesting to see the cannon on the ground level. This National Historic Site of Canada carries an important piece of history of Kingston. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kingston itinerary 3 days.
