Bring Your Thing - Soldiers, Sailors & Jailors

Start Date:
End Date:
7:00 PM – 9:30 PM
Portsmouth Tavern (96 Yonge Street) Kingston, Ontario

You are invited to bring any object you believe relates to the theme “Soldiers, Sailors, and Jailors.” Share memorabilia which tells the story of a soldier, sailor or jailer and bring your thing!

This pop-up will test your Kingston & Canadian knowledge by hosting a NIGHT OF TRIVIA at the Portsmouth Tavern, which will start at 8 PM.

Local museums will show off artifacts from their collections, including; Canada’s Penitentiary Museum, Murney Tower NHS, the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes of Kingston and the Royal Military College Museum.

The Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites (KAM), in partnerships with the City of Kingston, is featuring a series of pop-up museums throughout 2017 as part of Kingston’s Canada 150+ celebrations.

Discover heritage through the objects and stories of others!

If you are unable to attend these events, you can follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @kingstonmuseums. Use the hashtag #BYTKingston to share your “Soldiers, Sailors & Jailors” items.

KAM would like to thank the City of Kingston for its support of this initiative. For more information about future Bring Your Thing events visit
