"The Iceberg Shop" provides a free interpretation centre in a historic building complete with artifacts"
The Iceberg Man was so pleased with the image of the container ship "Astrom" passing behind the iceberg that he had local artist Jason Sharpe paint a huge mural of his picture on the Iceberg Shop.
Welcome to the Iceberg Craft Shop
"The Iceberg Shop" provides a free interpretation centre in a historic building complete with artifacts, a display of fascinating pictures, informational material and souvenir and craft products.
"Some of the existing privately owned tourist facilities in the province provide evidence of the entrepreneurial skills available here.... One particularly good example we found was 'The Iceberg Shop in Twillingate."

The Iceberg Shop is approximately 160 years old. In earlier days it was the barn of the family of Georgina Stirling, Twillingate's own opera singer. The building was towed across Twillingate Harbour to its present site in 1958.
