It's a gorgeous building, inside and out. Recently completed maintenance and repairs to the dome should ensure its longevity. Go for the guided tour. Maybe a bit dry for the young ones though.

Last time I took the tour, we were allowed to wander around before the tour started. Not anymore. Went for a tour with my son's school group. We had the best tour guide you can imagine. His name was Will and he was the most articulate fellow ever. He was extremely over the top but in a good way. He... More

The legislature not only is a great place for dates but family fun. In winter there is a skating rink complete with a shack to warm up and put on your skates. Also there is an area where many snowmen were built and the lights are gorgeous! In summer it is nice to go sit on the benches and take... More

Visiting Canadian legislatures is a must in each capital city. The Chambers are ornate, the design historical and there is great value in learning the history and culture of each province. This Assembly is no exception and enjoys a beautiful exterior landscape.

Interesting "old" building. It's only 102 years old but that passes for old in Edmonton. It's a really nice building to look around and the tour's which are offered on the hour are very informative. I asked lots of questions and the lady was excellent with her responses. Well worth an hour of your time if in Edmonton,

We loved our walk around the grounds and we didn't even go inside. Go early in the evening, not many people. It took us about an hour. Unexpected highlight of our time in Edmonton

I love walking around the Legislative Grounds. It is well maintained and has beautiful trees and plants in the summer, and in winter the landscape can be very romantic feeling, with the skating rink piping out music and all. There are seats to sit for awhile and walkways going all around. Inside the Legislature, the staff are always very friendly... More
