The PumpHouse is the perfect place to visit if you are looking for entertainment and enrichment.  Alongside the many events and changing exhibits to capture your imagination you can also discover the story of the PumpHouse transformation into a museum.  Our historic building also still houses supersized steam machinery that brought water into Kingston’s homes and businesses, playing an important part in building Canada’s success.
