Overview

The Rooms is a place for all of us: for those who live here and those who want to experience it fully. Part sanctuary, part showcase, part classroom and part playground, it’s both a destination and a journey. This is a gathering place, a creative space and a cultural centre as distinct and unique as Newfoundland and Labrador. It is our place to come together, to create meaningful and memorable experiences. It is our place to share the best of who we are.

The exhibits are nice and provides some information on Newfoundlands' people and history. The view from the café is great and the only critic we would have is that all the information is only in english. Understanding that NL is english speaking, for a provincial...More
