Highly recommend this tour with Frank Albo. His passion and humourous story-telling make for an entertaining and informative evening. His extensive knowledge and charisma are well worth the price of admission. Don't miss out on this fabulous tour!

The building is very interesting to visit. If you get the chance it's old and full of history. The grounds are beautifully kept.

Beautiful building. You can do a self guided tour. Fun to visit when parliament is in session. There is a ton of history and even a book written about the Hermetic code

Striking in its self-presentation on the outside, you have to be careful not to overlook its beautifully crafted individual features hewn into the building all around. The grand staircase with imposing bison guards leads regally to a marvelous open chamber that overlooks the star pool. Walking the hall ways you'll discover many interesting historical nuggets about the province and its... More

We toured the Legislative Building with our 10 year old grandson last summer. We were impressed with what we learned on the guided tour. I would recommend the guided tour to anyone with interest in old architecture as well as the governing of our Province.

The grounds are very beautiful but the Architecture in the building is worth the trip. Nothing has been modernized. All the old woodwork has been maintained. It's not suitable for those with disabilities. It's remained the original design with all its political and historical value kept intact.
