Owner description: The Rooms is a place for all of us: for those who live here and those who want to experience it fully. Part sanctuary, part showcase, part classroom and part playground, it’s both a destination and a journey. This is a gathering place, a creative space and a cultural centre as distinct and unique as Newfoundland and Labrador. It is our place to come together, to create meaningful and memorable experiences. It is our place to share the best of who we are.

We visited The Rooms museum today. The views of St Johns are lovely from the observation deck. The art gallery has some wonderful local art. The museum has so much history of Newfoundland and of WWI. This is a must see while visiting NL.

Beautiful building with great view of the city. Nice restaurant with excellent food. Museum was very interesting and needs a couple of hours to cover. A must visit while in St John’s.

Many interesting exhibits, especially if you don't know Newfoundland history. As tourists who already knew some of the history and who had already traveled around the province for a week, it was fun to learn more. We easily found much to look at and we loved the live music. Our time included a very nice late lunch in the cafe. We were there from noon to 5 ( when it closed).

We recently visited The Rooms in St. Johns to look at the displays and have lunch. The building itself is amazing and we enjoyed the art, artifacts and museum. We appreciated the lockers to store our coats when we arrived. We started with lunch on the top floor in the cafe. The food and service were excellent and the view of the harbour was brealthtaking. We worked our way down through each room enjoying the art, furniture and models of the animals of Newfoundland. There is a room devoted to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment which was really interesting to see. The gift shop on the ground floor is0 well stocked with things for kids and adults. A must see when visiting St John's!

The Rooms is a nice mix of art gallery and museum. I liked the variation of artist’s works shown and the museum sections. From local artifacts, regional animals to wartime garments, stories and history. The layout and design of this building was very interesting. It should be viewed while in the city.

Allow for 3 hours to fully enjoy or longer if you wish to eat in the Café.
