For a fun and educational experience, head to Johnson GEO CENTRE, a science and geology museum on Signal Hill. Overlooking St. John's, most of the museum building actually sits underground, with walls of exposed hill rock adding to the atmosphere. See a wide range of minerals, rocks, and fossils, admire the massive solar system replica, watch a 3D movie about the earth, or view the exhibits about the Titanic tragedy. Among the many interactive and interesting displays, you can learn about Canada's nature, history, and space exploration efforts.

  • My kids loved this place. I enjoyed the Titanic exhibit and the star gazing classes given by a knowledgeable young University student. A great addition to a trip up signal Hill. Be sure to check out all of the hiking trails outside of the building as well.
  • Staff was passionate in sharing their knowledge of the area/ geology. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the exhibits!
  • Great place to go with your family. Lots of information to take in! And some very informative talks.
  • Very interesting exhibits. We should have stayed longer but our brains started to hurt.
  • Simply displayed history of planet and people. Reasonably priced gift shop.
