The museum was well done and very interesting. They had a very put together exhibit of the history of Twillingate. The gift shop had an interesting mix of crafts. Perfect for a rainy day.

We are from Ontario visiting friends. Walked to the museum one day just to drop in and have a look. Lots to see. No charge, but there is a jar for donations, which we did.

It was a rainy day in Twillingate and this was a fascinating place to spend a couple of hours to get to know the local history.

with highlight being some mere Newfoundland socks for my wife. Interesting local history and well maintained exhibits well worth the entry fee (free) with donations as you see fit Rob
