One of the best museums I have been to. A complete display of personal effects, trench art, nursing, and home front, encompasses this military collection of uniforms and medals. ( yes even a V.C.) The large digital photos throughout and the short videos are impressive....More

The Rooms is an imposing modern building of mixed architecture on top of the hill overlooking St. John's and the harbour below. The view is stunning from the restaurant and lower level. I ate the best seafood chowder I have ever had there as well....More

Enjoyed the history and the art. The building itself was fascinating, with wonderful views of St. Johns. Understand that the restaurant is good to but did not have a chance to try it out.

Amazing views, great place to sing (my choir sang here for Podium: On the Edge). Lots of great things for the kids. Just come to see the view to the ocean if nothing else.

The World War I exhibit is outstanding and moving, and the Newfoundland history is also well-done. I was on the fence about spending time indoors here on a lovely summer day, but it was well worth it.

I agree with everyone here. I'm one of those visitors who tends to read every panel and I think we went through the museum in less than three hours, including a dessert stop at the café.

They do but I do not know when. I'm sure a quick google search could help you or if you gave them a call.

The Rooms is located far up a hill, which affords an amazing view. The taxis are good here, so use them. Probably Water St and George St are close enough to walk to. if you want to eat at Adelaide's, reserve many hours in... More
