The Grenfell historic properties are very well done. Many different exhibits throught the museum and learning the history of the area and Dr. Grenfell was a plus. Little gift shop as well.

If you're in St. Anthony do go, but not worth going far out of your way. Exhibits in museum and film well done. Preserved residence worth a walk through. Reasonably priced. Nice gift shop.

Fishing villages, far north, locals and insights into life as it was in the north of Newfoundland. Shouldn't be missed.

Grenfell was definitely a hero in his day, a remarkable man. A must on my list of things to do in St. Anthony. You will walk away feeling humbled.
