The centre was closed for the season in early September but we were able to see the 'statue' on the grounds. Interesting to see if you are in the area. Would like to have visited the centre.

Interesting in the winter too!! A life sized replica of the world's largest giant squid that was found near Glover's Harbour in 1878. Local fishing vessels hauled this monster into the shores of Glover's harbour where it has been famous ever since.
