Level 2 Atrium

Focusing on fascinating collections that have come to The Rooms over many decades, this Level 2 Atrium exhibition starts with a look back at the original collection of the former Newfoundland Museum. What do people collect? What motivates us to accumulate certain things? From the practical to the whimsical, everything from jelly moulds to mollusks, we look at collectors and collecting passions over the decades.
