With a spectacular view over the city and harbour, this combination art and cultural museum should be on everyone's list of things to do in St. John's. Lovely restaurant with some interesting and traditional meals. We found the food to be excellent. We went to Sunday mass at the beautiful cathedral right next door and then into The Rooms for the afternoon. It was a beautiful way to spend a Sunday.

We had been advised by friends to go here and it did not disappoint. Outside, there are wonderful interpretative walking trails all around the facility and a rock 'garden' with signs describing each rock's history and composition. Inside the staff were welcoming and friendly. There is a great gift shop with local crafts and guide books. And once downstairs we were greeted by a friendly staff person who described what we would see. A multi-media experience not to be missed.

We were provide free tickets from our airbnb host to the Botanical Garden's. We took her up on the offer and bike to the gardens (pretty hilly at some points) and it was a really tranquil place to visit. Right from the friendly staff, the indoor setup to the beautiful, recently renovated path ways. We loved the greenery as well as the vegetable garden and green house that had setup, those ripe tomatos looked divine!
