Tour gives visitors a chance to see some of the beautiful work that has gone into creating this parliament for .Nunavut. It probably could give them a bit more of a sense of the political, social and economic challenges the legislators face.

The Legislative Chamber is only available for viewing by booking a guide ahead of time (no regularly set tour times). I was still able to peer into the chamber through the full glass doors and see the grandeur of the room. But the atrium...filled with gorgeous art, and presentation pieces. A treat to behold!

One cannot visit Iqaluit without visiting the Legislature where the big decisions are made for Nunavut. This gathering place of the MPs is truly a noble place: the seats are covered in seal fur, and narwhal whale tusks adorned with precious gem stones flank both sides of the speaker's chair. Traditional tools of men and women are displayed, and gifts... More

Everything shows the rich and historic culture of the Inuit. Chairs covered in seal skin, the symbolism in the flag. One cannot find a more fascinating venue for a government.

I was worried I'd get a little uninterested since the word "legistlative" doesn't necessarily highlight "fun", but I was wrong. The tour featured beautiful artwork, interesting general information and overall worth it. Recommended if you're in town!

Incredible architecture and was worth the visit. The guide was nice and cute. Wish I could have heard more about the history of how Nunavut was formed and how the area is really governed.

Take a free guided tour, which happens at 1:30pm everyday during the summer tourist season. Just show up; no reservation required. Sit on the speakers throne and marvel at how comfortable seaskin is. You will also learn about the symbolism of all the art inside the house, most of which were gifts from other provinces and territories.
