Admiralty House Museum & Archives

Located just outside St. John’s in scenic Mount Pearl, Admiralty House Communications Museum will fascinate you with artifacts from the region’s past, wireless communication and the tragedy of the S.S. Florizel.

Enjoy fascinating, surprising, and once top-secret stories. This historic building was originally constructed in 1915 by the Marconi Telegraph Co. during the First World War as the top-secret H.M. Wireless Station for the British Royal Navy. This station, now the last standing of the 11 identical stations around the world, was built to intercept secret German naval transmissions, track icebergs, and ships in distress.
