The exhibit focuses on how the public managed to get representative government, and talks about the transition from military to civilian rule in Newfoundland. The exhibit has a unique modern feel and is very interactive. Between the rhyming puppet show style films, and the interactive old map of St. John's, it's impossible not to learn something new.
As a side note, we think this point in history could make a great mini-series or game!
All in all, we think it's a great place and it's unfortunate that more people don't visit - we arrived around 3 pm and we were the first visitors of the day! Here are a few more pictures of our time at Commissariat House.
