Come and share in the Open House at the Rooms Provincial Archives in celebration of Archives Week on Saturday, November 22 from noon to 4:00 p.m.

This is an opportunity for you to visit the Archives Reference Room to see archival treasures including rare maps, photographs and documents that will be on display for this one day only.

It will also be an opportunity for you to talk with Archives reference staff about the genealogy collections that are held in the archives or to talk about family, community or school projects that you would like to work on in the future.

The day will include archival films in the theatre; a “Behind the Scenes” vault tour and a guided interpretive tour of an archival exhibition.

A special program has been designed for our younger visitors. Children will be invited to join in the fun at the Maps and More section.

The Rooms Provincial Archives has kilometers of text, half a million images, thousands of films and videos and through them, the opportunity to discover all the peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador. Their personal lives, politics, social activities, military actions and the exploration and exploitation of our natural resources are all documented in the Archives.

The staff of the Rooms Provincial Archives would be pleased to help you find what you’re looking for in the largest archival collection in the province.

Admission to the Archives  sponsored events  is FREE!
