The Labrador Interpretation Centre is now open for the 2014 season.

Temporary Exhibitions

Grand View: Newfoundland And Labrador Landscape
From the glacier-scraped Avalon Peninsula to a grand vista in western Labrador, from the thriving cities of St. John’s and Labrador City to now re-settled outport communities, artists have captured the uniqueness of our landscape and the ways people adapt to living here in this selection of artworks.

Permanent Exhibitions

At the Labrador Interpretation Centre you’ll discover the founding peoples of Labrador – Innu, Inuit, Metis and Settlers. In the permanent exhibition The Past is Where We Come From, you’ll hear the voices and see works of art and artifacts from each of our cultures. You’ll also explore our ancient Aboriginal history and see how we live our lives today. The exhibition is presented in Inuktitut, Innu-aimun and English.
