RMC is a must see for the military buff. Visit the museum first but then spend time walking the grounds stopping at every trophy. Make sure you stop at Memorial Arch. Beware of the overpriced gift shop.

Take some time to walk around the campus and then the museum to learn about and experience how Canadian Forces Officers are educated.

Very cool military museum located in old Fort Frederick. Climbing into the old structure is a trip through history in itself! There is a vast collection of military memorabilia that is fascinating. My son loved this museum!

This Military college is located on the banks of Lake Ontario, Lawrence River and Rideau Canal which gives a fantastic view of its location. The Cadets take their training in the lake with little sailing boats in front of the College adds attraction to the tourists. To get admission to study in this Royal Military College is very tough and... More

The College is such a strong piece of history in Canada. The campus is filled with historic buildings and towers. The military is the key historical element of Kingston. A must visit for history folks.

Wasted potential, and RMC needs to do more. A nice Martello tower and good exhibits about RMC history. Stuck in the top floor (which we had to hunt to find) were placards explaining the history of the tower, and the fortifications in the immediate area. The museum was staffed by a cadet (we woke her as we arrived) but she... More
