  • Railway Coastal Museum
    By land and by sea, the Railway Coastal Museum highlights the history of Newfoundland rail-and-nautical services. The museum sits inside the 110-year-old Newfoundland Railway station, which is at the beginning of the Trans Canada Trail and the original railway route. Visitors can explore the old platform, a restored 1940s train car, and the stories of the people and events that shaped Newfoundland's past. Along with these railway-themed exhibits, the museum showcases the efforts of the Newfoundlanders who created the Coastal Services passenger, mail, and freight routes.

  • Marine Park
    Happy shrieks drift through the brushy pines of Marine Park’s 1,000-acre estate, wafting from campgrounds and the slate-blue waters of Herring Cove Pond. On the private beaches, warm-skinned guests cut through the afternoon sun on rented paddleboats or scream down 40-foot-tall waterslides. Lodgers park RVs or set up tents on secluded campsites equipped with fresh water from an artesian well, or use a mini-golf course for practice or attempts to trick Tiger Woods into thinking he has become a giant.

  • Plaza Bowl
    Plaza Bowl entertains families, parties, and leagues as balls hurtle down lanes to crash into five-pin clusters. The ample space can accommodate up to 216 bowlers or 216,000 bowling trophies at a time as they chuck spheroids down the hardwood during regular or glow bowling sessions. Afterwards, players can refuel at the snack bar on slices of pizza and crisp, golden-brown onion rings or bulk up their thumbs at the in-house video games and air-hockey table.

  • Johnson Geo Ctr
    An expanse of 550-million-year-old rock surrounds the geological exhibits at The Johnson GEO CENTRE, a 33,600-square-foot facility that resides mostly in stone’s favourite hangout: underground. There, the Steele Earth & Space Theatre screens high-definition science-minded films in 2-D and 3-D, and the Geo Theatre projects the four-billion-year history of the earth onto a rock wall featuring a cave, running stream, and glowing lava. Exhibitions include scientific oddities such as a cutaway of the earth and 565-million-year-old fossils preserved in layers of volcanic ash. The museum also highlights the educational opportunities found in more recent events: real-life artifacts and interactive kiosks tell the Titanic's tragic story, and the ExxonMobil Oil and Gas Gallery explores energy with scale models of an oil tanker and offshore supply vessel. At the KidsPlace, youngsters aged 1–7 can put on science-inspired plays on the puppet-theatre stage or study trilobites and eight-track tapes in the fossil corner. The gift shop also outfits kids with educational books and games, and adults can stock up on agate wind chimes and sterling-silver jewellery. In between bites of GEO sandwiches in the GEO café, members can peruse schedules of numerous monthly events or plan enrollment in summer camps aimed at junior scientists.

  • Arts & Culture Ctr
    Acclaimed tenor Ben Heppner is one of the world's foremost tenors, displaying an impressive dramatic depth and a virtual treasure trove of trophies, holding a Grammy and a Juno award. Deep into a trans-Atlantic tour that includes stops at such estimable opera houses as London's Royal Opera House and Toulouse's Th?atre du Capitole, Heppner will appear like a ghost to a melancholy Danish prince in St. John's, regaling opera aficionados in an intimate solo performance of selections from his repertoire, which may include excerpts from such challenging works as Verdi's Otello and Wagner's The Ring of the Nibelung, a musical adaptation of Tolkien's The Two Towers.
