Colonial Building:From 1850 to 1959, the Colonial Building was witness to Newfoundland’s unique political story – from colony to nationhood, from nationhood to the suspension of democracy during the Commission of Government years, and onwards to provincial status within Canada. A new experience of the Colonial Building will bring to life the people and political events that still resonate in Newfoundland and Labrador today.
