Caprica: familiar places

I sat down to watch Caprica this week (Season 1, Episode 6) and I was so surprised to recognize the location where the Graystone cocktail party was held!

It's quite clearly filmed in Gatineau's Canadian Museum of Civilization!

For comparison, here's a shot of that hall; note the columns and totems in front of the window:

This shot, a few seconds later, prominently features one of the museum's Inuit sculptures. If I recall correctly, it's somewhere up on the second floor.

I wonder when this was shot - it looks like summer outside, which means if the view isn't retouched too much, it was shot before this winter?
