While enjoying the vast array of entertainment options in the city of Ottawa, travellers can also visit a wonderful attraction where they can learn about Canada's government. The Laurier House downtown is beautifully protected and restored, and welcomes travellers to have a look into the lives of two well-respected prime ministers of the past.
According to the organization's website, this complex was constructed in the 1800s, and was home to two great Canadian leaders - Sir Wilfrid Laurier and William Lyon Mackenzie King. Upon his death, the mansion was donated by King to Canadian citizens and guests of the future so they could understand and enjoy the stories of the house and how it came to be.
Those who visit have the opportunity to enjoy a workshop, take some time in the multimedia room, or enjoy holiday-themed events revolving around Canada Day and Christmas.
Guests can have a unique experience at the Laurier House by taking one of the exciting and mysterious candlelight tours, reports the Toronto Sun. This activity gives new life to the historical existence of prime ministers and allows guests to get a true sense of the city's rich past.
