The remainder of the second floor has been devoted to the museum.  Rather than compete
with area museums, such as the Fishermen’s Museum in Port de Grave and the Cable Building
in Heart’s Content, the Society worked on depicting the commercial history and lifestyles of Bay
Roberts at the turn of the 20th century.  Some 3000 artifacts are currently on display.  
Additionally, there is an extensive collection of pottery artifacts recovered from Bay Roberts
Harbour c.1500s.  A dedicated military exhibit is the most recent development. The exhibits are
continuously updated and/or expanded.

The museum was opened in October 2000.  To date, there have been approximately 40,000
visitors.  Qualified heritage people have stated that it is currently one of the best “community”
museums in Newfoundland and Labrador.  A foreign visitor remarked that he has been in
community museums all over the world and he has never seen a better one.

As a result, the Society has received the “Award of Merit” from the Museum Association of
Newfoundland and Labrador.
