This is a museum in one of the oldest houses in Bonavista. It was closed until the students are out of school and hired in July. This was a problem at smaller venues throughout Newfoundland in the month of June.

Great visit during our stay. Guides are friendly and knowledgable. Interesting piece of history related to Newfoundland's run up to confederation. Fire place and stained glass window are worth stopping to see alone but the rest of the house is beautifully restored to 1939.

Enjoyed walking through this place and hearing the history. Wish we could've seen the inside of the building next door but perhaps another time
