Owner description: The Rooms is a place for all of us: for those who live here and those who want to experience it fully. Part sanctuary, part showcase, part classroom and part playground, it’s both a destination and a journey. This is a gathering place, a creative space and a cultural centre as distinct and unique as Newfoundland and Labrador. It is our place to come together, to create meaningful and memorable experiences. It is our place to share the best of who we are.

A good selection of art and history. If it is a foggy or wet day take this in. Well worth the visit.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

A magnificent building with stunning views of the harbour. It contains archives, an art gallery, displays throughout the building , a gift shop and a restaurant. All aspect of this structure are superb, and should not be missed by anyone visiting St. John's who has any interest at all in the history or culture of Newfoundland.

“Combo Museum/Archive - The Rooms”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great on all levels - artifacts, artwork and archives, all in one place

A bit off the beaten track because St John's Streets are so steep, so perhaps taxi to and walk back from is best

“A Glimpse of NFLD History & Culture”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I'm a museum junkie, and, while this place didn't exactly knock my socks off, it's definitely worth a visit. I especially enjoyed the exhibits on Beothuk history. There are also great views of St. John's Harbour from up here.

Reviewed September 22, 2013

Very sensitive architecture. Stand on the 2nd. floor landing and look out over the St. John's Harbour
