Conception Bay Museum

The past comes alive inside the Conception Bay Museum through exhibits highlighting the major aviation and pirating history of one of North America’s oldest settlements, Harbour Grace, and the surrounding Conception Bay.  See the logbook Amelia Earhart signed before departing on her solo journey across the Atlantic and miniatures of Peter Easton’s famed pirate ships.  Housed in the historic Customs House (1870), the museum overlooks Colston’s Cove, where John Guy landed salt in October 1612.
