The interior decorations from this chapel, previously part of the teaching Convent of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Ottawa, were saved from demolition in 1972. Designed by the diocesan architect Canon Georges Bouillon in 1887 they have been reconstructed in the heart of the Canadian galleries adjacent to the trees and flowers of the Garden Court. The marbled cast-iron columns, three altars, balcony, windows and soaring fan vaults, unique in Canadian ecclesiastical architecture, make this interior a priceless element of Canadian architectural heritage.
