The Museum of Health Care is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It is situated in the Ann Baillie Building, a National Historic Site and former residence for nursing students at the Kingston General Hospital's School of Nursing. The School of Nursing closed in 1974, after the Ontario provincial government transferred the training of nurses to colleges and universities. In 1995, the Museum of Health Care was relocated to the Ann Baillie Building.

The museum has an extensive collection of artefacts and archival documents, dating from the 18th century to the present. The museum includes both on-site and off-site exhibits, focusing on the development of medicine and health care, in its operations. Also in operation, is a walking tour, created in partnership with the Kingston General Hospital, of the Kingston General Hospital National Historic Site.

It is the only museum in Canada dedicated to the history of health and health care.
