The Rooms, St. Johns Reviews

  • What a space! NL has outdone itself with a museum that does an incredible job of sharing their rich and colourful history. We were lucky enough to take in an exhibition of their contributions or more appropriately, their sacrifices of the Great War, particularly the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel. This was made special with the help of descendents of those who served in a variety of capacities including nurses and foresters as well as soldiers, recounting their family members role, contributions and the price they paid. Things are always changing at The Rooms but there is something for everyone. From cod to music, Cabot to Confederation and beyond, their stories are told through art and artifacts.

  • Wonderful place to go for our wonderful history from the beginning to now. Not expensive to visit. Fabulous views is old St. JOHNS and a restaurant on the third floor for great food. Food is a little on the expensive side.

  • Ordered the lunch special which was the lamb burger. Texture was soft and complimented well with a delicate mayo sauce. Very well done and different take on burger. Great view as well over the city and compliments to the service being on point.

  • The museum was great, but didn’t have as much historical content as there could have been. Too much dead space or gimmicks rather than historical pieces. Aren’t there more things to talk about or explore? There must be. Bonus points for having galleries within the building.

  • Great museum! Not only is it brand new, but the exhibits are diverse and very educative. Particularly the one about the first world war. It is very inexpensive compare to museums in big cities and the view from the second and third floor is great. I recommend!
