  1. The Victoria Memorial Museum Building temporarily served as the Canadian Parliament after the great 1916 fire. The last time I was inside, it was still the Museum of Man and the deeper you got into the building, the more off it started to feel… different. I like to think its Sir Wilfrid Laurier who laid in state on the first floor in 1919.
