Nouvelle exposition

Open for first weekend of Winterlude just before the 100th anniversary of the Fire of 1916 on Feb. 3rd.

From Barracks Hill to the Nation’s Capital and the devastating fire of 1916, the history of Parliament Hill has been one of change, intrigue and National identity. “Forged in Fire: The Building and Burning of Parliament” explores the history of the site and the buildings that called it home throughout its nearly 200 year evolution. Featuring unique artefacts and photographs from the BYTOWN MUSEUM, including glorious large-format photographs from official Parliamentary photographer D. A. McLaughlin, this exhibition is not to be missed!

Forged in Fire: The Building and Burning of Parliament, will be on display at the BYTOWN MUSEUM from January 29, 2016 through to October 31, 2016.
