Curators are the keepers of collections of artifacts, stories and history. Our City of Kingston curators take care of the thousands of items in our civic collection.
Objects, documents and works of art are the material expression of a community’s culture and history, and act as tangible witnesses to past achievements, events, ideas and ways of living.
In 1967, Sandy MacLachlan created the Woodworking Museum as a Centennial Project. To house the collection, he dismantled an 1855 log house, originally built by the White family in Lanark County, and moved it to Princess Street in Kingston, Ontario.
The Museum has the following educational programming options available for booking Tuesday and Thursday mornings. General tours can be booked outside of these hours, please contact 613-542-0543 for more information.
