Netherlands Centennial Carillon

As its name would suggest, this bell tower was given by Queen Juliana in 1967 to express gratitude for Canada's role in liberating the Netherlands during the Second World War. The tower officially opened in May 1968 with 49 bells and a further 13 were added in 1971.

The bells were ringing as I walked out of the Royal BC Museum but I did not recognize the tune.
