  • This museum is just awesome. Even though it was a very long journey from St. Johns to Bonavista (4 hours with short breaks), so it was worth it on a super sunny late summer day in September. The Museum informed with its old buildings and one just as lovingly as highly informative-designed collection of Bonavista, James Ryan and the cod, which the daily life was dominant source of income of the people of Newfoundland up to the 70s. The modern technology of the fishing industry and their negative impact on the entire area is very well represented. The staff, which has been in our site visit, was simply brilliant. So we learned much more than was in the Museum to learn about the region and its people. The price of admission is extremely cheap for those who otherwise outrageously high American prices are used. Yes, this is a Museum, which simply is fun, entertaining and fraught, but really in a very clear manner take much backgrounds one with detail information that one anyway, not even in the short term memory "stores", can be that we better understand our history learn.
