  • Lovely set of interesting buildings with displays. The house has one room of furnishings. The two museum buildings have excellent explanations and displays. Upstairs is an eclectic display if period items. Well done!
  • Seeing the house of how merchants lived could be of historical interest to some people, not I. Super well built house and great exhibit...though.
  • Lots of puffins! We went at 7:30 am (optimum Time) no tourists and puffin activity is at its peak. Just make sure to bring a good camera.
  • learned a lot about the proud fishing history at the site and the area. The museum includes a fascinating overview of that history, as well as changes in technology, the people, the culture and social life of the community.
  • Great history of the fishery and merchants in bonavista. A must see.
