Enjoy fascinating, surprising, and once top secret stories. Admiralty House Museum was originally constructed in 1914 by the Marconi Telegraph Company during World War I as the top secret H.M. Wireless Station Mount Pearl for the British Royal Navy. This station, now the last standing of 13 around the world, was built to intercept secret German naval transmissions, track icebergs and ships in distress.
Now a museum, see artifacts and stories about the Wireless Station and its contribution to history in this region including its role with the Royal Naval Reserve in World War I, the disaster of the S.S. Florizel, the first Transatlantic flights, and the development of Mount Pearl. Also, see an operational radio station, drop in to the visitor information centre, or find our museum geocache!
