The building is nice, the fountain & riverfront is nice. Biggest problem is parking! We had a handicapped permit or don't know how we could have found a place anywhere close & nothing free!

Now the time I had visited the legislative building isn't available, but the time I did go and see it with my high school class it was a beautiful place. Would definitely go see it again.

I wasn't able to go inside the building since a lot of media personnel were there during that time. However, I was able to walk around the area and took a few pictures to take home with me.

One of the nicest legislature buildings I have seen in Canada, if not the nicest. Very clean, well kept and the traditional styling is immaculate. Be sure to look for "Golden Boy" but you will have to look upwards to see him.

I have been to the capital buildings of all 10 Canadian provinces and many American states. This one is one of the most magnificent of al,l as it was built at a time when such a building was economically feasible and the province was mature enough to afford it. Today such a building could not be built as the cost... More

I was fortunate to have had a guide to point out, not only the stone that comprises the walls, but also the architectural elements with 'hidden' Masonic meanings: refer to the book 'The Hermetic Code' for detailed analysis and description of the interior and exterior of the building on this topic. Beautiful grounds and parks surround the building.

This was exceptional! Make sure you look at the stone on the walls and try to learn where it came from. Find the fossils on the wall - incredible! A beautiful, well-maintained building and worth some time to look around.

I never expected such grandeur in a building serving a little over one million people. Sculptures if business - full size. Amazing ceilings, and lots of space. I thought it might be biting, but would recommend it to other people passing through the city.

Great place to look around. Be sure to go around back and see the gardens and fountain. Take the tour, lots of interesting facts that you would miss.
