I visited during the summers open house and was amazed by the beautiful architecture and design. the history and stories made it very fun
It's interesting, definitely worth a visit. If you've been to other Legislatures in Western Canada, it's more or less what you would expect. There are glass doors so you can peek inside the legislative assembly, which is shocking small.
The Canadian train stopped here for a few hours and we were free to visit Winnipeg. As it was a Sunday, this building was free for us to explore with no guided tours. Beautiful entrance hall, statues and marble and helpful staff to instruct. You don't need long but it's worth a quick visit.
One of our "Bucket List" objectives is to get to the government houses and legislatures in every Province, asnd Territory in Canada. Our visit to the Provincial Government House in Winnipeg proved to be one of the more intresting.

We went on recommendations of friends. We caught the last half of a tour which was well done, The building is beautiful as well as the gardens and grounds. If you have an extra 1-2 hours, it's worth the stop
We were free to tour on our own and particularly enjoyed the grounds that had several statues, gardens and displays. The weather was great 34C and sunny. The entrance stairway from the waterfront is a powerful impression especially the Riel influence.
The exterior is typically impressive with the "Golden Boy" statue on top a magnet for photography. Inside, full-sized bison statues "guard" the main staircase - more opportunity for photography. The atrium ceiling is beautiful. What's missing is Manitoba history - plaques on the walls, photos and stuff like that.
The building is beautiful, but better is the walking tour in and around it. The tour has a very well done descriptive handout that discusses the 30 or so statues, etc, surrounding the building in a very large, beautiful park. We spent about 2.5 hr, and really enjoyed it.
