AAA Editor Notes

Laurier Museum (Musée Laurier) is at 16 rue Laurier Ouest. The Victorian mansion was once the home of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who held office as the first French-Canadian prime minister 1896-1911. Built in 1876, it houses a collection of Laurier memorabilia and furniture as well as temporary historical and political exhibits. Also on-site is the Musée Hôtel des Postes (Post Office Museum), constructed in 1910 in the Second Empire style. Step inside and you'll find rotating displays of fine art and a permanent exhibition that re-creates the atmosphere of a turn-of-the-20th-century post office. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
