The Town of Petty Harbour/Maddox Cove
The Petty Harbour Museum is located in the Town of Petty Harbour/Maddox Cove, just 15 minutes from downtown St. Johns. The museum is situated in the basement of the old school, which is now the Community Center and Town Office. “Many Stories in Tiny Houses” is a comment a student from China wrote after his visit. Our museum tells the stories of the people in the fishery, military and many walks of life. It includes fisherpersons, teachers, clergy, and even our cobbler, cooper and midwife.
Check out our artifacts like the “Barbel”, which keeps you dry. See the rifle that “Shot the Polar Bear” and hear the poem that was written about the adventure.
