Newfoundland and Labrador’s Memories of the First World War at The Rooms


The First World War had a profound impact on Newfoundland and Labrador. It involved thousands of our people in world-changing events overseas and dramatically altered life at home. Our “Great War” happened in the trenches and on the ocean, in the legislature and in the shops, by firesides and bedsides.

This new exhibition shares the thoughts, hopes, fears, and sacrifices of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who experienced those tumultuous years—through their treasured mementos, their writings and their memories.

Mondays & Fridays at 2:30pm, Wednesdays at 11am, and Sundays at 3pm until September 30.
Cost: Included with the price of admission
