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.

It was a fun journey through the legislative building with a tour guide giving us a lot of "possible" information. I had a great time.. even if I didn't believe everything I was told...

We did not get a chance to go inside but parked and walked around the grounds. It is just a beautiful complex, in a beautiful setting. Next time we will set out sometime to take an actual guided tour of the inside. Its a must see in Winnipeg even if you don't have time to go inside.

Definitely worth going but you need to do it with a tour guide so you get the full benefit of this really interesting building. We had a great guide who explained all the small intricate details of each item, carving, design of the building as well as the Mason history within the building. Fascinating stuff.

Did a quick tour of the legislative building, absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous architecture, artwork and woodwork. Thanks very much to the very nice woman in the gift shop that gave us the extra info on the Golden Boy and some of the history of the building itself. Beautiful grounds as well.

We didn't think the building would be open on a Sunday so we were pleasantly surprised when we visited and it was. We really enjoyed giving ourselves a tour since there were no guides available on weekends. The building is beautiful and the inside architecture is amazing. The grounds are also beautiful with the gardens and statues worth a tour... More

A very remarkable, educational visit to the Manitoba Leg with Dr Frank Albo. An amazing 2 hours with a very engaging guide.

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!

A must visit in Winnipeg. Couldn't make the Hermetic Code Tour, but doing a bit of reading and using the self-guided map, gave us a great feel for the history and context of the building
