A beautiful building replete with history. The architect designed it with hidden symbolism. You can book tours.

I've seen most of the Legislative buildings in Canada, and I think the Manitoba one is the nicest. Grand design and beautiful workmanship.

This was such a special visit to the Legislature. It was the Jan. 1, 2015 Governor General's invitational day, with a party and gathering for the public to enjoy. There were sleigh rides, refreshments, choirs and a lovely way to visit the Governor general of Manitoba, and to shake hands with the Premier. We received a memorable Manitoba pin, and... More

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
