Royal Canadian Military Institute, Toronto

Hidden by the facade of a modern building in the heart of downtown Toronto, and surrounded on either side but modern corporate structures, likes this historical gem. The Royal Canadian Military Institute was originally founded in 1890 by Sir William Dillion Otter and houses both documentation and artefacts of the Canadian military throughout its history.
