Introducing Our First Virtual Tour QR Code

Here’s the first of our ‘virtual tour explainers’ for our grounds. Just open up the camera function on your phone, point your phone’s camera at the QR code, click the link, and watch the quick video. In the video, one of our volunteers will take you to Bannerman River and explain the history of the old Riverhead Mill.

We hope to add a few more video explainers inside the park and, with the help of the Town of Harbour Grace, expand this series to include other historic sites in the Heritage District and community generally.

Thank you to board member Christina Cox for her work producing this first entry in the video series.

Summer Update: August 16, 2021

Just a quick programming update from us at the Conception Bay Museum.

Sunday, August 22, 2021, will be our final day for general tours of the Musuem with our summer student guides. While this summer was a bit different – as expected – we appreciate everyone who stopped by to visit and receive a tour from our student guides. We truly appreciate your continued interest in our wonderful Museum.

And now, the reason for this early closing: We’re happy to announce we’re doing a complete remodel and renovation of our popular ‘Aviation Room’ this fall. Unfortunately, the Museum will be a bit of a mess during this process and really not suitable for public viewing. However, this new exhibit will be worth the wait and hard work – trust us! Stay tuned for updates along the way!

Just a reminder that our final Lunchtime Concert in the Park is this week, Wednesday, August 18, starting at 12 p.m. On deck are Paul Stevenson and Honourable Pam Parsons!

And finally, don’t forget our final show of the summer, a ‘Night Concert by the Sea’, scheduled for Wednesday, August 25, with a rain date of Thursday, August 26. The park will be lit, the street will be closed, and on deck to perform are Abigale, Gord Harris, and Chad Hunt. Tickets are just $10.00 and can be purchased in advance at the Museum, Rorke Stores in Carbonear, and at the gate. We hope to see you there!

Thank you everyone for your continued support this summer! It truly means the world to our staff and volunteers.
