Enjoyed the display of minerals and the through explanations of some of the different geological formations in the area. The room with the dinosaur exhibit was also interesting.

A free museum for all ages. There is stuff for kids and for adults.
They have dinosaur bone to dig up for kids.

Enough schist-talking, this museum is fun to explore if you enjoy rocks and fossils. With a surprisingly extensive collection, the low, low price of free, interesting plaques, you're granite-teed a fun time. I thoroughly enjoy geology so I'm sure it's not for everyone but I loved it.

As far as museums in Kingston go, this one is small, but you can't beat the price: free. It has lots of samples, both local and from around the world. Their recent addition of the topography display made it an extra long visit for the boy the last time. They also have some map activities for little kids. They host a lot of school tours so you might run into one and in December they host a rock and mineral sale as a fundraiser.

This is an excellent small museum if you like rocks fossils and geology. It is free and there are several student available to answer questions and show you around if needed. The new item that impressed me was the augmented topography sandbox made from an Xbox 360 sensor, projector and computer. It senses the shape of the sand in the sand box, contours and colour fills the display which is then projected onto the surface of the sand. If you change the "hills and valleys" in the sand this then updates with a very slight time lag. Brilliant!
The displays on Ediacara fossils were good and there is a large reproduction of the bedding surface from mistaken point in Newfoundland. Dinosaur exhibition is a bit small but there were some genuine dinosaur eggs from China.
