Provincial Seamen’s Museum – A Division of The Rooms
Permanent Exhibition: Living The Life – Objects of Identity
Explore artifacts from the land and sea, used by Newfoundland families from the 1800s to the mid 190
We have long been industrious and resourceful people – making a living from the sea and land. This exhibition features artifacts commonly used from the 1800s to the present.
The ground floor celebrates the province’s profound connection to the sea. It includes tools of the inshore and offshore fisheries and of the merchant operations behind these industries. Artifacts of ships, sailing and navigation are featured.
The second floor presents life on the land – objects from our agricultural and transportation collections and items related to trades, professions and work in the home.
This out-of-the-vaults style exhibition allows for the presentation of a large, varied selection of our heritage. We invite you to explore, ask questions and to share the memories you have of these artifacts.
A temporary exhibition and a program of special events are featured each season. For details, please refer to our web-site and Facebook page(facebook.com/provincialseamensmuseum).
