The Rooms

Browse the work of talented artists and dive into thousands of years of history at the largest cultural center in Newfoundland.

Learn about Newfoundland and Labrador through its history, heritage and art at The Rooms. The large cultural space in downtown St. John’s encompasses an art gallery, museum and archives showcasing different aspects of the province. Browse archeological relics, study paintings and search through historical documents.

The Rooms is not an easy building to miss. It looms large above the city skyline on the site of an old fort. Before you visit each of its venues, consider taking the 15-minute orientation tour which is included with the price of admission.

Explore Newfoundland’s natural and cultural history in The Room's museum. A mix of permanent and rotating exhibits are spread over three floors and cover more than 12,000 years of history. The permanent collection focuses on people in the province, from those who lived here 9,000 years ago to 18th-century residents. There are also interactive exhibits for children.

Get to know the work of the talented artists of Newfoundland and Labrador in the art gallery. More than a dozen galleries display temporary exhibitions covering a variety of art forms, including sculptures, paintings, printing and modern art installations. Inside the Provincial Archives division, you can study historical records and photographs, including regional government documents.

Take advantage of the building's height to enjoy panoramic views. Go up to the atrium and look out over the city and harbor.

With its downtown location, The Rooms is easy to reach by public transport. Metrobus, the city’s public transit system, stops nearby. On-site parking is free, although after 3 hours you will need to put a tag in your windscreen which you can collect from the cultural center. 

The Rooms is open every day except for some major holidays and closes on Mondays between October and May. Admission charges apply with reductions for seniors, children, students and family tickets. Children aged 5 years and under get in for free. Wednesday nights are free as are the first Saturdays of each month between October and May.
