Beautiful display! Both of the videos were informative, perhaps the birds could be with more footage and info to complement display on ground floor. Been here a week (Grates Cove) lovely hikes, people, & Air.

This is a fantastic place. Great to see the same kind of tool my grandfather used in Ontario and the nation elders in Northern Manitoba. They also made their fish nets using the same tools. Thanks for a glimpse at our great heritage.

We again have the pleasure of visiting Bay de Verde. Such a beautiful community. We enjoy our visits with Olga & Frank Blundon (next door) each time we visit Newfoundland. You all have done such a wonderful job on the old home. Thank you so much.

Wonderful exhibit – very educational. Will never again complain about the cost of salt cod!

This is the first time that I have been back to my grandmother's house since she lived here. I used to take the bus from St. John's while attending university to come visit her. A lot has changed in this house since I've been here last, but much is the same. I have a lot of memories of this house and my Nan. There are still a few items that I remember painting years ago. It has been a great pleasure to come back to visit Bay de Verde and this house. I hope to bring my own family here before too long.

This is an excellent way to show and tell of the history of this close knit community. Now that we've visited the house, we will have a greater knowledge of the community as friends tell us stories about Bay de Verde.

Great place. We could smell the twine loft before walking in the door. Brought back lots of memories. Very impressive work, very detailed.

Very unusual items. Makes you think of the past long gone, but a very good life to live.

Wonderful – whole Island out of this world.

A tremendous job. We were particularly impressed with Sim Lockyer models in the attic. Such workmanship and they clarify the rest of the fishing exhibit. The house itself is an excellent job. Particular thank you for staying open in September.

I have just spent 5 months exploring Canadian Culture, life & history and this beautiful house typifies everything that people love about Nfld and its history. Thank you.

A great representation of our history; our past and our culture, many of which bring back fond memories of my early childhood in the Bonavista Peninsula. A great job that represents excellent community cooperation and a dedicated effort on behalf of a focused volunteer committee. Congratulations and well done. Thanks to Gerald for the Tour .
