Creating an immersive visitor experience

The main goal of the Manuels River Natural Heritage Society is to ‘preserve and interpret the natural, cultural, and geological history of the river.’ The new interpretation centre is an icon in the developing Conception Bay South area, acting as a first-class tourism destination for the study of paleontology resources.

As a key attraction for visitors to the community and the province, the centre blends with the natural surroundings as an environmental example of excellence. This project was designed with progressive environmental standards in mind, and utilizes a geothermal heat pump system to minimize energy loads and operational costs.

Creating a full experience for the visitor is crucial to the success of interpretation centres. Amenities that are bright, inviting and functionally efficient bring pleasure to the visitor, and enhance their experience. We acknowledged this dynamic and adopted this approach to its design philosophy.

The Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre includes classroom space for sixty people, a floor of interactive exhibits by Lord Cultural Resources and Mystus Exhibits, a café, a 52 seat theatre, a gift shop and a separate event space for concerts, business meetings, and other private events.
