  • Guided Tour - In July 1866, after nine years and several unsuccessful attempts, the first permanent telegraph cable connecting Europe and North America was hauled ashore at Heart's Content. This little Newfoundland town leaped into the history books and remained a global communications hub for over a century. Explore the site with one of our interpreters where you'll discover how messages were sent and received and the fascinating stories of the operators who lived and worked here.
  • Discovery and Imagination Space (coming this season) - Immerse your family in Hearts Content's lasting legacy and spend some time learning with us. Explore science, technology, history, and the world around us. Explore the history and technology around how we communicate from morse code keys to more modern methods. The Discovery Zone is bursting with activities that provide kids and families with hands-on experiences.
  • Film - An 18 minute film shown on demand tell the story of Cyrus Field and the Trans-Atlantic cable that changed the world. Ask one of our interpreters for more information.
