excellent over view for a first time visitor to newfoundland, the exhibitions were well presented. an unnecessary imo amount of sq footage and volume is consumed by an overscaled grand staircase

“Good museum, Good view of city and harbor.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

I enjoyed the history, culture and art of the local area. Nice new modern building with access for the handicapped. They have a gift shop and eating facility. I would go back and recommend it.

“Excellent View and Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is a regular spot for both tourists and locals to enjoy lunch with friends. The view of downtown St. John's and the harbour is fabulous. The menu has local items and are both tasty and appealing to the eye. While there, why not view the latest exhibit or do some research in the NL archives. Some exhibits are free, while others may have a small fee. The gift shop is worth a visit as well.

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you are in St. John's make a special effort to visit the Rooms. Its special architecture offers spectacular views of the harbour, the city, and special landscape features like Signal Hill. Watch ships enter and leave the busy port as you have a great lunch at the cafe on the top floor. There is an excellent museum - one of the best in the country, along with theme displays throughout the building. Wonderful and friendly staff.
