    Possibly because the exhibit was based on one regiment from one geographical region, this exhibit was the best WW1 exhibit I have ever seen. In addition to the soldiers and home front, it also covered the forestry unit and merchant seaman. The displays were well labelled, everything was identified and you could easily match label to item. My sister commented that any museum that can bring tears to your eyes twice is worth a visit.
    The cafe in The Rooms is also worth a visit.

    When visiting Twillingate be sure to go all the way to the end of the road up to this location. Views are wonderful. Lighthouse was not open when we visited but still worth a drive up.

    We loved our time on the boat with Captain Dave and Ray. They were so fun and caring and made sure we had a wonderful time. We caught lots of fish in a short time and then they toured us around and showed us interesting sites on the shoreline. The museum is a worthwhile visit as well. Very interesting and informative and set up so well with such care and attention. We got some lovely treasures in the gift shop as well. A huge highlight of our trip.

    Lots of local history - across the street from our hotel, so we walked over for a quick visit. Great information

    We did the “Food, Fossils, and Fire” guided hike on a Thursday afternoon. Our guides were very informative and friendly. The fossil dig was very fun and the bonfire included marshmallows to roast and a magician/story teller. Great outdoor activity for all ages.

    Enjoyed the history and brief tasting. Not a big place but interesting . A real shame they aren't allowed to sell the port there....never made it to their official liquor store so a lost sale

    A nice new and well laid out museum, it tells the story of how the base started and the community it has. Nice artifacts, very professionally done. Well recommended for any visitor, visit the Canex store too, lots of great 5 Wing souvenirs.

    On our way to Corner Brook from St. John's, my husband and I knew we had to stop in Dildo because duh!

    We decided to check out this interpretative centre and I'm glad we did. It was only a few dollars to get in and it is quite small, but there was lots to look at. Two friendly young people were staffing it that afternoon, and were very eager to tell us all about Dildo's history.

    As another reviewer said, most of the displays are homemade but it is clear that the displays were made with pride.

    There are some beautiful views from the parking lot as well.

    If you've taken the time to drive to Dildo, don't miss this quaint little interpretative centre.
