A historic site right here in Mount Pearl.

This historic site was constructed in 1914 by the Marconi Telegraph Co. during WW1 as H.M. Wireless Station for the British Royal Navy.  The museum now houses displays about early communications, the history of Mount Pearl, the tragedy of the S.S. Florizel, and the Royal Naval Reserve. Drop by for a guided tour or explore the site on your own.

CICQ 92.3 FM Tourism Radio is broadcasted out of Admiralty House Communications Museum and features stories about the history presented in the building and unique tales from around the City and area. Such stories include the sinking of the SS Florizel, Commander James Pearl, the life and scientific contributions of Guglielmo Marconi, and the Great Atlantic Air Race. It also features directions to the museum and information about upcoming events at Admiralty House and in Mount Pearl.
