A very interesting museum. The WW1 exhibit was extremely interesting and informative. It gave a very clear and heartrenching story about the heartbreak to Nmrefoundland. A highlight on out visit to Newfoundland. 😎

An amazing group of museums in Saint Johns. They have paleontology, sociology, zoology, ethnic studies plus a nice gift store. The architecture is modern and compelling with a wonderful openess. I just needed more time!

If I lived here I’d buy a yearly pass to come back again & again. Very informative and (if you follow the scheme) is logically sequential. We started on floor 4 and worked our way down. If you are there at lunchtime and the restaurant...More

A perfect place to spend a rainy day (or sunny), the history, and the displays and so informative that it is captivating. My daughter is not a museum person, but spent a lot of time looking.

First of all we received a warm welcome from the commissionaire and were very impressed with the building itself. The First World War Exhibition was memorable and is a must for any visitor. One visit doesn't really do The Rooms justice, pace yourself and call...More

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.
