St. John’s Museum Peers Over The Old City With Both Eyes Open

By
Real Estate Agent with Sutton Group-Capital Realty Ltd.

Standing boldly above the landscape where once the Fort Townshend stood, The Rooms looks alertly over old St. John's.  It is a modern piece of real estate like no other on the Island.  It houses the artifacts, archaeology and architecture of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Here at The Rooms, the archival records which preserve the heritage of Newfoundland and its people from centuries before are housed in a climate controlled environment ensuring they will be kept intact for generations to come.  This is where the Provincial Museum, the Provincial Art Gallery and the Provincial Archives have been brought together under one roof.

My wife and I were delighted to have spent a day there in the summer of 2008 wandering through the many large rooms which display a multitude of impressive works of art, unique artifacts of Newfoundland and Labrador's history and numerous stories that have come to define our early days.  Together they represent the people of the land and the sea as well as the province's significant place in North America.

Any trip to St. John's would be incomplete without taking a few hours to observe the sights and sounds at The Rooms.  When you come, you will definitely want to stay and have lunch there so you can take in the amazing city view.  The Rooms offer panoramic vistas of St. John's and its harbour from the restaurant where you can have a glass of wine and a light lunch or just enjoy a 'mugup' with a muffin and cup of tea.  The multi-level atrium serves as a gathering place and the exhibition rooms are places where artistic events are planned throughout the year.

This is a great way to be immersed into the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador.  To check it out further, follow this link to The Rooms.  A day spent at this masterpiece of architecture will be one of the many highlights in your excursion to St. John's, Newfoundland.

Kathy and Matt.  Thanks for your comments.  Glad you enjoyed the photos of St. John's.  I hope to post more in the coming weeks.  There are so many places in Newfoundland that are worth seeing and talking about.  Cheers.
