Gather at the Rooms

During this networking reception immerse yourself in the local culture at Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest public cultural space. It’s the place where it all comes together – the history, heritage and artistic expression. A place for people, The Rooms unites the provincial archives, art gallery and museum and is a portal to the many stories our province has to tell. Soaring into the skyline of historic St. John’s, its unique design mirrors “fishing rooms” and offers panoramic vistas of St. John’s.
