The Johnson GEO CENTRE In St. John’s Newfoundland
If your Canada travel plans include Newfoundland, then you simply must make time to visit the Johnson GEO CENTRE in St. John’s. This is a wonderful geological interpretation centre located on Signal Hill in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
A 12 million dollar structure that included four years of research, planning and designing to complete. The result is an amazing Centre, with most located underground in carefully excavated glacial formation that actually shows the exposed bedrock of the hill inside the structure.
A Geological Interpretation CENTRE & Much More
Besides depicting the incredible geology of Newfoundland and Labrador from millions of years ago, the Centre offers much more that the entire family will enjoy.
From strolling outside along the lovely interpretive trails surrounding the Centre, to exploring wonderful exhibits explaining the complete Titanic Story.
Your underground experience will guide you through the history of this Province, from its people, our planet, the future and even space exploration.
It’s no wonder this is listed as one of the top attractions in Newfoundland not to be missed!
The Centre Offers 14 unique attractions for you to enjoy, including;
GEO Gift Shop
Amazing Earth Theatre
Our Future & Space
The Great Rock Wall
The Titanic Story
ExxonMobil Oil & Gas Gallery
Steele 2D & 3D Theatre
Johnson GEO CENTRE Theatre
I would recommend starting your visit off by enjoying the brief presentation in the underground theatre. A unique and well presented introduction to our planet, the Province and much more.
After viewing the presentation, stroll at your leisure through the many underground exhibits the Centre has to offer.
The Titanic Story
Be sure to enter the Titanic Exhibit which outlines in detail the complete story and events behind the tragic sinking of this luxury cruise liner.
The models, exhibits and the stories behind this most unfortunate event, will have you drifting back in time.
From here, visit and learn about Icebergs in the Ice Gallery. Where they originate and where they go.
Rock and Crystal Displays
For rock and crystal lovers, the displays are amazing! View beautiful Labradorite crystals and much more. At the same time, learn about the history and origin of many on display at the Center.
Planet and Space Exhibits
View their Planet & Space displays, as well as an informative featured Oil and Gas exhibit. It’s all here and underground at the GEO CENTRE!
Exposed Bedrock Formations
GEO Vista Park
Begin or finish or visit by spending time walking outside along the paths of the GEO Vista Park. Stroll alongside rock formations and natural plants surrounding the Centre. View structures from early settlements and enjoy views of St. John’s and the Harbour from high above on Signal Hill.
A great way to spend a day while visiting Signal Hill and St. John’s.
