Owner description: 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.

“Worth a full day visit...5 stars!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This amazing facility focusses on the geology and topography of one of the most unique landscapes in the world. The displays are amazing, and it has one of the best Titanic exhibits I have seen....featuring the truth...just the truth.

“The kids loved it”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Lots of information to take in here but well worth the visit. My son loved the space exibit and the fossils. We were lucky enough to have a special presentation by one of the staff where we were able to touch real fossils and learn amazing facts about them. We will be going back our next visit to St. John's.

“How are Newfoundland & Labrador related to Africa?”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This world class place has many interactive exhibits, is well laid out and provides even a representation of our solar system. Rock structures are exposed and show how our part of the world was once part of Africa. Special exhibits about fossils and The Titanic hold everyone's attention. Their banquet facilities are second to none. A must-see for all. I've visited several times and I have been impressed more and more each time.
