  • I thoroughly enjoyed the WWI exhibit and found it really engaging, I personally wasn't taken by the rest of the exhibits on. The exhibit on St John's history had real potential but the touch screens installed seemed to all have a standard "coming soon"written under each learn more section The cafe is a must, best view in st John's
  • Didn't get to spend as much time there as I would have liked, however The Rooms had some great exhibits and the building itself was truly stunning. It was great that the place featured both museum and art gallery exhibits to offer a much more diverse viewing experience. Would love to visit again with more time if given the chance.
  • A great museum dedicated to the human history of the Newfoundland people - from when it was discovered by the European, the development of local culture, to the impact of its sacrifices in the WWI.
  • A wonderful piece of modern architecture in a terrific location. The food in the café is excellent too. I didn't have time to view the exhibits, unfortunately, but I wish I had.
  • Really well laid out and great content. Multiple floors too. Bonus is the building has great architecture. Free admission on Thursdays from 6-9pm!!!
