The grounds and gardens are beautiful, nice walk. We took a guided tour but you can go on a self guided tour. Information and booklets for self guided are located in the gift shop. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting, thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

The building is beautiful and the history behind the construction and many architectural features of the building is very interesting. The guide, Lauren, we had did a great job keeping both the adults on the tour as well as... More

I can't imagine doing a tour of this impressive building without Dr Frank- he is amazing! The research he has done on the building makes it come alive. Extremely entertaining and informative. Not to be missed if visiting Winnipeg!

The character of the Legislative Building in Winnipeg unfolds history before your eyes...this beautiful building hosts many wedding scenes because of the stonework and decor..... the staircase around the complex adds to this beauty.

Always a pleasure to visit the provincial capitol building. Such an impressive piece of architecture as well as interesting piece of history. Tours are offered hourly during the summer (don't know about off peak times).

Amazing historical building with an interesting history if you take the interior tour. The grounds and gardens are also gorgeous and everything is so well maintained. Details are spectacular!

We did the Hermetic Code tour with Dr. Frank. It was superb. No, world-class is more like it. SO good! You will never look at the Legislative building the same way again.

Unfortunately, there were no tours available during our stay in Winnipeg. Also, no self-guided tours, which would have been nice. Otherwise, a very interesting building for those interested in architecture.

This building was built to handle a city of 8,000,000 people. It's architecture is outstanding no matter where you go. The carvings ;look like they were done yesterday. The cafeteria also serves very good Winnipeg Style sandwiches.WE did the boat tour and also walk the many gardens around the building as they are beautiful and in excellent care.
