Almost all of the original buildings have been completely modified to add in 'displays' and plaques, I would highly recommend the sir William coaker site instead as it is still almost completely intact and had much more helpful and informative staff.

Excellent way to learn about back then and very knowledgeable staff ????

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.

Emily Thompson

Alicia Wells


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.

The tour is self-guided, so for kids it's all reading posters and diagrams


Got a list history from the tour then they let you go out and explore the area yourself.

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.


Derrick Jamieson

It's a great little museum. Lots of very interesting information about the region. I went to a lot of parcs canada site in multiple provinces and rarely did I meet employees that nice. You really get the welcoming atmosphere that newfoundlanders are so famous for. It is a little disappointing that this site isn't on the explorer circuit. It is unbelievable that parc canada didn't judge this site interesting enough. My kids really love collecting the dog tags and were very upset to not being able to collect a tag at this location. @parcscanada this is something very easy to fix.

The staff at this site are amazing!!! So accommodating and great with our young children (aged 2 and 4). While the exhibits were extremely interesting and well put together, the staff really made this visit special. It would be great if Parks Canada could make this site part of their explorer program. Since most of the visit is inside, this is something to do when the weather isn’t the best.
