Overview

Cut from the ancient rock of Signal Hill in St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador, the Johnson GEO CENTRE takes you deep underground to experience the story of planet Earth. Discover our planet's incredible history, get the real story behind the sinking of the Titanic, learn about the volcanoes, earthquakes and natural forces that shape the very ground beneath our feet, and so much more. Explore the interactive exhibits on your own or join our interpreters on a guided tour. The kids will love playing in the Hibernia KidsPlace and experiencing our multimedia film complete with rain and lightning. You can all enjoy lunch at our onsite cafe and take home unique keepsakes from GEO GIFTS. Then, take your learning outside with a walk through our GEO VISTA PARK. At the Johnson GEO CENTRE, we'll show you Earth from the inside, out! The GEO CENTRE is wheelchair accessible and offers free, off-street parking. Bus parking also available.

One of the best museums I've ever been to. Incredible exhibits, excellent presentation and all set within a dialogue of Newfoundland and Labrador. We will return as there is so much to see and do!

Really enjoyed our couple of hours here. The "pathway" around the exhibits allowed us to explore a wide range of interesting aspects of Newfoundland and Labrador. Really found the geology aspects interesting. We also enjoyed the movies playing in the cinema. Great place!More

The cost was $27 for two adults. Too steep in my opinion for what we saw. Expect in-depth displays on off shore oil refiners, rocks to space and modern life and an intensive look at the titanic.More
