Dorset Soapstone Quarry Site and Museum

Dorset Eskimo Carving Committee Inc.

Nestled in the heart of Fleur de Lys, the Dorset Soapstone Quarry Site and Museum embodies the human ingenuity and connection to the land and sea that defines Newfoundland and Labrador. The quarry is a tribute to the Dorset (Tuniit) Indigenous people, who lived here 1,200-2,000 years ago and whose artistry and culture come alive through ancient soapstone vessels and artifacts.

Escape the ordinary and discover a place where the whispers of ancient history mingle with the salty sea breeze, embracing visitors with a sense of wonder and respect for this one-of-a-kind place.

Wheelchair accessible. Gift shop, RV parking and picnic area on site.
