The Rooms

The Rooms, Newfoundland's historic, culture, and art museum, has amazing exhibits that celebrate our people, our history, and our province. The building's unique architectural design is eye-catching but few know that its physical design of was modeled from the fishing rooms of historic NL. During your visit to The Rooms, be sure to check out the lookout points on the outdoor balcony next to the Rooms Cafe to see beautiful views of St. John's harbour and downtown St. John's.
