Signal Hill, St. John's: 18 reviews and 38 photos

  Johnson Geo Centre, St John's, Newfoundland
by victorwkf

The Johnson GEO Centre tells the story of “Our Earth and Our People” by making great use of the geology of Newfoundland. Located on Signal Hill, the large, glass-encased entry is the only part of the building above ground. Most of the 33,600 sq. ft. of floor space is underground – right inside of solid rock walls, which for more than 550 million years have witnessed the story of Earth. Those walls are there to see and touch, and reveal the secrets of the creation of lands and seas, mountains and rivers, and the causes of earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves, and the ice ages.
