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.

Once inside it is a very impressive building and well worth a visit. Try standing on the marked spot underneath the dome and listening.

A very grand building from a distance and even more so once inside. The grand staircase in particular grabbed my attention - the two life-sized Bison at the foot of the stairs were amazing. Our guide informed us of the very intriguing way in which they were erected within the building so as not to damage the marble flooring. The... More

It was great to see on the front grounds of the Building a statue of Queen Victoria sitting, and I had previously seen at the BC Legislature in Victoria, BC a statue of the Queen standing. Also, on the right side of the Building on these neatly-kept grounds with nicely-trimmed and spacious lawns is a statue the picture of which... More

We had a great time walking around and checking out the inside and outside of the Legislative Building. There are a lot of places that are great for photography. The building and grounds are well kept. There are interesting statues and architecture to look at. The only downside were the group of people in the bushes out front, they were... More

I have been to Monitoba Legislative Building twice, Once, I took a guided tour and I was really impressed with the information given by the guide. The paitings reveal much of the history of the province. The archicteture is breath-takingly glamorous. The hidden history behind the structure is worth listening to.
