    Arch of Honour, RMC

    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.
