Visiting Happy Valley-Goose Bay? A trip is not complete without a stop at Them Days, a charity dedicated to collecting, protecting and promoting the stories of Labrador. During the summer, we offer walking tours of historic Happy Valley. The rest of the time, we publish a quarterly oral history magazine and maintain an archive of Labrador materials. We have a permanent exhibit of historic photos, and we also have a gift shop of magazines, cards, colouring books, etc. A perfect place to learn about Labrador!

This is a great little store selling books that tell great stories of Labradors history. They still carry almost every volume along with calendars, colouring books and maintain one of two amazing archives in Newfoundland and Labrador. They have an impressive collection of photos, audio tapes and written stories all showing the amazing history of Labrador. The current editor is... More

If you want to learn about the history and folklore of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and meet some of the people who lived it, and who are preserving it, go to Them Days. The stories and photos of the Inuit, Innu and Settler cultures are incredible. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Take the tour for the full experience, and buy... More

Very educational place to visit with a cute quiet little office. Interesting for anyone interested in the American Air Force. I bought a magazine about the military beginnings of Goose Bay Air Base.

Them Days did it. Before the records were lost, they recorded old photographs and oral histories of Labrador. Indian, Intuit, and Settlers who fished and hunted for generations, followed caribou herds and tended trap lines. Transcriptions from tape recordings are phonetic so you can almost feel the dialect. When I dropped by their office and storefront, I felt welcome right... More

Interesting place. Extensive historical archives. You can read on a comfortable couch or easy chair. Staff are very helpful. You can have a picnic in the garden along side and enjoy the fresh Labrador air.

The staff, tour guides and storytellers were great. It was a rainy day but that didn't matter, we all had a great time! I learned so much about the history of Goose Bay and the people who first settled here. The tour stopped into the first nursing station where we heard stories from a nurse who lived and worked. It's... More

Thanks Jillian! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the walking tour! (Something about the weather makes it seem that much more adventurous, eh?) I know I always enjoy them, and getting to meet the people just passing through, or the people who live here and want to learn more about our town. Be sure to stop here again sometime! More

There is a small seating area where customers can leaf through old publications on Labrador, and look for specific historic articles. Step back in time for a look at "how it was" in the old days. Fascinating! The Staff ladies are very helpful and knowledgable about Labrador events and History. An excellent place for the student or researcher to look... More
