5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Fishing villages, far north, locals and insights into life as it was in the north of Newfoundland. Shouldn't be missed.

“Very interesting!”

Grenfell was definitely a hero in his day, a remarkable man. A must on my list of things to do in St. Anthony. You will walk away feeling humbled.

“Grenfell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Grenfell's home built 1910 furnished as it was when he lived there with his nfamily. The interpreation centre traces the live of Grenfell and the influence he had on the lives of Newfoundlanders!
