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.

The rooms are absolutely amazing! Choose an entire day to go there because the time you can spend there is endless! Its not for small children for sure but awesome for those who love art & culture.

“Not enough time”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We spent the better part of the day on the fourth floor did not have time to see the lower ones. The Art Gallery was devoted to one artist, the museum section was an interesting study.

“A must see in St. John's”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

"The Rooms" is a striking piece of architecture that captures the early traditions of life in Newfoundland while creating modern, open airy spaces and excellent museum facilities. It affords panoramic views over the city as well. We spent three hours here and could have spent a few more. The museum displays are first class; the art installations in the third floor gallery outstanding. Apparently the coffee shop is very good, but we didn't get to try it because by 12:00 there was a fifty minute wait for a table. Get your name in for a table early if you want to eat there! We were somewhat disappointed in the gift shop: not a great selection and rather pricey, but we weren't there primarily to shop anyway. There are some activities for children, but I probably wouldn't bring very young children here. Ask for the CAA discount.

Very clean and beautiful building. Exhibitions well layed out and easy to view. The restaurant inside the rooms was also spectacular. Would go back. Much more to see.

“the best”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is a world class museum. We didn't allot enough time. Many floors, great movie about Grenfel, diverse displays in a gorgeous building. BTW the food in the cafe is incredible! I highly recommend this - give it at least 4 hours if you plan to eat there.
