Event #3 – The Rooms – Provincial Archives, Museum and Art Gallery Interactive Tour – A modern center consisting of the NL provincial archives, a gallery of local, national and international art and a museum dedicated to natural and cultural history.  The guided tour will provide participants with an impression of the impact the First World War had on both the overseas and at home through stories, photos and mementos of the people who lived it.  Participants will gain a sense of The First World War as a significant event that shaped the history of this province.  We will think about how we choose to promote peace and identify symbols of peace.  The tour will also include an opportunity to explore, identify and practice with objects contained in an interactive cart.  In doing so, participants will appreciate how objects can teach us about history and the important of world peace.    www.therooms.ca
