Kingston Museum

Kingston Museum was built in 1904 with contributions from Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish American benefactor. There are permanent galleries telling the stories of Kingston and the photographer Eadweard Muybridge as well as a gallery hosting temporary exhibitions representing arts, crafts, photography and local history.

The Eadweard Muybridge gallery describes the life and work of the internationally renowned pioneer photographer who was born, and died, in Kingston. He donated a vast collection of photographs, documents and equipment to the museum. Muybridge conducted radical experiments in the photography of movement, paving the way for moving images and the movies.

The Museum also explores Kingston's ancient history and has a fine collection of Martinware pottery which is often on display.
