Basilica Cathedral Museum

Basilica Cathedral Museum "The Finest Room In the Colony"

The newly renovated museum was originally built as a Public Library and Reading Room in 1859. A British Officer writing in 1861 described the library as "the finest room in the colony." The Museum features fourteen professionally designed panels that tell the story of the development of Roman Catholicism in Newfoundland.

Also featured is the largest collection of church artifacts of artistic and historical significance in Canada. Artifacts on display date from 1524 and include sacred vessels, furniture, liturgical garb, paintings, books, and much more.
