"The Rooms" in St. John's, Newfoundland, is a cultural institution that serves as a museum, art gallery, and provincial archives, encapsulating the rich heritage and diverse cultural tapestry of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The building itself is a striking architectural landmark, standing atop a hill overlooking the city of St. John's and the harbor. Its unique design, resembling stacked boxes or "rooms," reflects the province's rugged landscape and the layers of history and culture it houses within.

The museum component of The Rooms offers visitors a journey through time, from the indigenous peoples who first inhabited the land to the European explorers and settlers who arrived centuries later. Exhibits showcase artifacts, artworks, and interactive displays that bring to life the stories of Newfoundland and Labrador's past, including its fishing and maritime traditions, its role in wartime conflicts, and the resilience of its people in the face of adversity.
