Newfoundland Travel Blog - The Rooms

The Rooms, Newfoundland's historic, culture, and art museum, recognizes and embraces the cultural diversity in our beautiful province. For those interested in pursuing more information about Newfoundland's history and culture, a visit to the Rooms is highly recommended. Take time to explore the exhibits, visit the gift shop and, of course, enjoy a cup of your favourite beverage while looking at the amazing views of the city of St. John's.
