A really beautiful building -- the architecture is a treat to see. I've been in the building, only once, on a Winnipeg Ghost Tour. I'd never realized the history there until I joined in the fun, it's fascinating.

Great architecture and lots of hidden finds in this legislature. A must-see place when visiting or passing through Manitoba's capital.

I went here as part of a wider tour of Winnipeg, so didn't have much time, but what we saw was so interesting. If you're into secret societies, like the Freemasons, then a stop here is well worth it. I believe there's a Hermetic Code tour, which if you're going independently, you should take. The building has many hidden nods... More

Very nice well kept grounds with various statues surround this imposing building. The classic architecture for the time period is beautifully built with the large limestone blocks and pillars. The “Golden boy” stature atop the great dome surveys the surrounding land. Each of the sides of the H shaped building have their own grand entrance with pillars and carved stone... More

This amazing building was one of the best Legislative buildings I have ever seen. The beautiful marble staircase, the enormous buffalo statues, and the 'golden boy' tops the building. This building is surrounded by some lovely flower gardens and statues. A beautiful building and grounds you should include in your travels. The guides were fun and informative.

This building is remarkable, both in it's architecture and in it's history. There is much symbolism and mystery as you explore and learn about the various chambers and areas. Incredible to look at some of the limestone blocks and see a fossil looking back at you. Lots to see and learn about!

I am so glad I took the time to walk down from the forks area to see this beautiful building. Only thing which could have been better if the river walk hadn't been under water.

Visited on the weekend of the Doors Open. The guides are excellent and gave a good perspective on the history of the building. A bonus was the Pride Parade that started from the legislature!
