Although government 'capital buildings' aren't usually at the top of one's 'must see' list, the Manitoba Legislative Building does have some very fascinating features. This building's location on the banks of the Assiniboine River, offers the summer visitor a serene, beautifully landscaped vista with its manicured flower gardens. The 'Hermetic Code' guided tours have drawn raves in travel reports and... More

I am a 63 y.o. Winnipegger and no matter what other structures are erected here or what goes on within its walls, the Manitoba Legislative Building is the probably the most beautiful and mysterious building in Canada. Rich in tradition (in the British parliamentary sense) and symbolism (both ancient and Masonic). To gain a greater understanding and appreciation of this... More

I was back visiting Winnipeg recently and went to see the legislature. I visited in the winter months so many of the outside landscaping wasn't available to see. I went into the legislature and walked around and could see the granite architecture. The granite was handmade by Masons and there is a lot of history behind the construction. Lots of... More

A beautiful building to tour. It is full of history and mystery. The building has "13's" built in to it to prevent bad luck and so many more interesting things. Take the tour and listen to the guides and you will not be sorry you did.

We did not go in but walked around the grounds when getting out and around town. Worth a visit if you are looking for something to do in town to check out the Golden Boy on the room top and the designs on the building

Fun place to visit when in Winnipeg. Wide towering stairs welcome you into the building. The Youth Parliament was a very informative attraction that showcased Youth debating policies and laws that are relevant in their communities.

From the outside this looks like a typical legislative building or Capitol, but inside is a majestic, sweeping building with lots to explore. The staircase is breathtaking and the legislative room is open to visitors. The hallways are lined with interesting plaques and photos. And make sure to pick up the brochure on the fossils of the building to do... More
