Memories of the First World War


Date: Sep 15
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Where: Level 2 First World War
Cost: Included With Admission

The First World War had a profound impact on Newfoundland and Labrador. It involved thousands of our people in world-changing events overseas and dramatically altered life at home. Our "Great War" happened in the trenches and on the ocean, in the legislature and in the shops, by firesides and bedsides.

This new exhibition shares the thoughts, hopes, fears, and sacrifices of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who experienced those tumultuous years - through their treasured mementoes, their writings and their memories.
