Definitely worth a guided tour. If you can't pull that off I recommend a reading of the Hermetic Code so you know what to look for.

This was included in our Winnipeg city tour. There are nice bronzes and other architectural details inside that lend themselves to great photos. They clearly take care of this building and are very proud of it, as they should be.

If you find yourself downtown with time to kill for an hour or two, go there. Very majestic and impressive building. This place has attitude from the moment you walk in. The tour is extremely informative and entertaining.

Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg is a beautiful building with a good amount of the province history. The entrance is free and easy, the security is very polite and willing to give information. The outside is also nice if you are visiting it in a nice weather. The only downside is that they leave the Legislative Chamber completely closed, not... More

We toured the Legislative building and loved the symbolism, use of natural materials and the connection to the Masons. Very interesting. Great stories by the guide.

Impressive structure began in the early 1900's. Enjoyed the photos. Women slowly began to hold seats in the legislature in the 1920's....from one seat to 20 ish in the 1970's.

The Legislative Building is situated in the heart of the city. I keep on coming back to this place and will never tire to do so. The building is interesting because of its location, ambience, architectural style and hermetic codes. The staff is friendly and helpful, making the atmosphere of one's visit relaxing.

While the dome and golden boy dominate the exterior, the real beauty is inside the building. At least take the self guided tour to experience, the stone work, grand staircase and life size buffalo statues. You also have to go to the lower level to stand in the centre of the star and experience the really cool echo effect. Then... More
