Admiralty House Communications Museum is launching a new exhibit that will be on display for the month of November at the Annex.

“Admiralty House has created a rich and interactive exhibit titled ‘Armistice 100,’” said museum chairman John Riche.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended the First World War. The commemorative exhibit will feature stories of the Newfoundland Royal Naval Reserve and the HMS Briton following the war, paintings by local Mount Pearl artist Darlene Redmond, and an array of First World War artifacts — including items that were physically brought home from battlefields in Europe.

“A century has passed since the end of the First World War, which felt like the perfect time to launch a commemorative exhibit of this nature,” said Sarah Wade, Manager of Admiralty House Museum. “Through artwork, artifacts and interactive components, we truly hope to give visitors an opportunity to reflect on this significant anniversary.”

‘Armistice 100’ will be open to the public starting on November 8. It will feature guided tours and public programming for all ages, Wade added and will extend “the narrative to understand what happened once the fighting had stopped.”
