A regular guide was replaced for the day with a staff member who was kind and proud about the Assembly, but not a tour guide, unfortunately, We would have had the same experience just walking around, if we could have. The building is impressive.

Great for people interested in politics and legislature in the north. Its a hop away from the Northern Heritage centre and can be seen in one day. Tours are only available in the mornings, and some areas are restricted.

We toured on Labour Day and there was no fee. There is no fee for the tour on any day. It was very interesting and well worth the tour.
