On July 1st, 2016, The Royal Newfoundland Regiment Gallery opened at The Rooms. It houses the exhibition, Beaumont-Hamel and the Trail of the Caribou: Newfoundlanders and Labradorians at War and at Home. The exhibition documents and explores the effects of the First World War on Newfoundland and Labrador, on those that fought, on the families and communities left behind, and on the politics, economy and future of Newfoundland an Labrador.
The exhibition catalogue contains first hand experiences of the people who were involved in and transformed by the conflict. These stories are supported by the participants, authentic objects and archival documents, many of which were donated by the thousands of people who came out to tell their family stories.
