London - Palace of Westminster
The Jewel Tower, across the street from Victoria Tower, hosts an exhibition on the "History of Parliament: Past and Present", where visitors can take a virtual tour of both houses of Parliament. The Jewel tower was constructed in 1365 as a place where Edward III could stash his treasure trove. It's also one of two surviving buldings from the original  medieval Palace of Westminster.
