FORGED IN FIRE | THE BUILDING AND BURNING OF PARLIAMENT
1, ruelle Canal, Ottawa, (Ontario), K1P 5P6
From Barrack Hill to the Nation’s Capital to the devastating fire of 1916, the history of Parliament Hill has been one of change, intrigue and national identity. Our new temporary exhibition, Forged in Fire: The Building and Burning of Parliament explores the history of the site and the buildings that have called it home throughout its nearly 200 year evolution. Featuring unique artefacts and photographs from the MUSÉE BYTOWN MUSEUM collection, including rare images of the construction of Parliament by early Ottawa photographer Elihu Spencer, this exhibition is not to be missed!
