Signal Hill National Historic Site of Canada

Visitor Centre

The Signal Hill Visitor Centre was re-opened to the public on Parks Day 2006. The modernized exhibit introduces the Signalman, who tells visitors the site's stories throughout the exhibits and film. Visitors are invited to learn about Signal Hill's prominent role in military and communications history. They will discover fascinating details on everything from the French attacks on St. John's in the 1600s to the Second World War, when the Hill was manned by American and Canadian soldiers. There is something for everyone at the Visitor Centre. Children and adults alike will enjoy the interactive displays and kiosks where they can send their own messages and even fire a cannon!

Bilingual service is available year round. The Visitor Centre, washrooms and Lookout Trail are wheelchair accessible. Washrooms are located in the Visitor Centre. Because of the historic architecture of Cabot Tower, it is not wheelchair accessible.

New ! Signal Hill Visitor Center now has a canteen! Come on in to enjoy a hot coffee, a comforting soup or a delicious Panini. These are all great ways to complete your visit of Signal Hill. You will also have the opportunity to taste Newfoundland traditional plates. For information and opening hours please call (709) 772-5367.
