The Rooms, St. Johns Reviews

  • The Rooms is a fantastic museum - very interesting spot with lots for both children and adults. They have featured exhibits (the schedule is available online) and activities for children. The price is a little steep but it's worth the price if you enjoy history. The building is large, clean and bright with large windows that host beautiful views. There's a small cafe on site, as well as a gift shop, and the parking lot is paid parking, with credit available on exit or a pay station inside. It's a great place to spend a few hours!

  • The lady at admissions was super friendly. My young boys had a great time exploring the animal area and asked lots of questions about everything else. We will definitely be going back.

  • We didn't have time to view all displays however great value for admission price. We visited on our way to airport and they were so kind to lock our luggage behind counter while we visited! Thanks. Great views of Harbour from top floor. Also interesting to have art gallery and museum in one place. Would definitely like to return.

  • Nice place with great views. We ate at the restaurant. Expensive but very tasty typical Newfoundland fare (fish cakes and cod tongues).

  • he view from the Rooms is absolutely beautiful, providing it's a clear day. The food is good and the service is friendly. A nice place to have lunch.
