    The Royal Military College (RMC) opened its doors in 1876 to its first class of 18 young Canadians to be trained in all branches of military tactics. One of its most famous graduates, is the Canadian Astronaut, Chris Hadfield.

    As a visitor, you are welcome to walk the grounds, with nice views of downtown Kingston and the St. Lawrence River. You can also tour a free museum which is open during the summer months, located in the fortified Martello Tower.

    RMC is situated on Point Frederick just east of downtown Kingston. It is a historically significant as well as a beautiful location, overlooking the city, and the entrance of the St. Lawrence River to Lake Ontario.

    Founded in 1876, the Royal Military College of Canada is located on Point Frederick, overlooking Lake Ontario, just east of downtown Kingston.

    The view, the buildings and the grounds of RMC are beautiful and visitors are allowed to walk around the campus. There's also a museum in the martello tower. Definitely worth the short detour!
