“The awe-inspiring spaces at the Canadian Museum of Nature bring to life Canada’s nature – from dinosaurs to aquatic wonders – all majestically presented in the castle-like Victoria Memorial Building. Beautiful, world-class galleries along with fun and interactive features ensure that visitors of all ages are entertained. The building itself has a fascinating past. It is the birthplace of all of Canada’s national museums and once served as the emergency headquarters for the Canadian government after a fire destroyed the Parliament Buildings in 1916. Former Canadian Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier lay in state in the Museum in 1919.”
