A visit to the Peace Tower observation deck always means stopping in the Memorial Chamber afterwards. Since Centre Block was reconstructed during and after the First World War, the Memorial Chamber was meant to be a key aspect of the new building. It contains books of remembrance listing the names of Canadian fallen in war and military service, with pages turned on a set schedule so that each page of each book is visible at least once a year. As well, there are intricate carvings on the walls and stained glass windows. It is a solemn, dignified place.
