I am lucky enough to see the leg from my office window, but yesterday had the chance to walk the grounds. Well known as a great place for wedding photos, there is lots to see. The polar bears, the gardens and the sculptures, placed all over the grounds, it makes me proud to be a Winnipegger!

This tour has to be booked in advance on-line and is only available April through Oct. on Wednesday nights....if you are in Winnipeg during this time frame you should not miss this tour. It is like a mystery tour that reveals the many architectural symbols that are hidden in the building and have gone unnoticed for over 100 years until... More

This is a very interesting Mason building with a lot of history. Google it for all the history, it's an amazing building with the Golden Boy on top! If you are in Winnipeg, it's a must-see.

Built in 1917. They have an elevator which is manual operator. Very interesting building to visit where there is a room for the Queen of Canada, Elisabeth II.

Great location with teriffic masonry and stonework. Lots of options - however you may need a second location with greenery if you go there in winter. Plus to going in winter - more time available. Minus is lack of vegetation. Summer may be better but you will have less time and crowds.

The architecture of the building is an attraction known as a work art in the area. The landscape and environment around contribute with the beauty of this amazing building.

A really beautiful building -- the architecture is a treat to see. I've been in the building, only once, on a Winnipeg Ghost Tour. I'd never realized the history there until I joined in the fun, it's fascinating.
