Don’t miss this great museum and archeological site while visiting Ferryland NL. It provides a good glimpse into the past of the history of Newfoundland. Pay the extra fee and visit the 17 century kitchen while there to see what’s cooking.

Before making the trek to the Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, individuals are asked to meet at the Centre roughly 30 minutes before, around 12:30. It's a great spot to stop and ask questions, use the washroom, and grab a sweater!

The fossil hike across the seaside barrens was great . It seems like a lot of people at first, but the crowd thins out quickly, and you will get to spend all the time you want with the fossils. Be sure to book this hike...More

We traveled to this are to visit Mistaken Point which starts with a visit to the Interpretive Centre. The introductory film gives a great overview of the site. You must make a reservation to ensure that you can go not the tour, so call ahead.
