Been there for a visit with friends really worth seeing with family! You will not be sorry! There is no fee just need find out what time you are aloud to visit the place. It will give you a history of how the Parliament started!

I seen most government building in Canada. This is the most outstanding of them all. The grand staircase is overwhelming; with the two like size bronze Buffalo standing on each side of the stairs. Take the 3 sets of 13 stairs to the Rotunda and view “tThe Pool of the Black Star”. A stay to Winnipeg without a visit to... More

The first Icelanders came to Manitoba in 1875. The history of Icelanders on the Canadian Prairie is so significant. A monument of one of our statesmen is in front of the building

This building is an architectural marvel. There are many hidden symbols and sculptures, it's hard to believe almost. Everywhere you look a different wonder presents itself. The building is made of beautiful Manitoba limestone. The floors are made of marble. Literally no expense was spared when they built this place. Check out the massive bronze Bison statues in the entrance.... More

Went here with my family to familiarize ourselves with Manitoba's culture in terms of politics.. Tip: visit during morning or early afternoon. We came here around 8PM and the place is a little eerie... so I had to really focus on admiring the architectural aspect of the building rather than the cool wind blowing from the inside! hahaha #scaredycat

A living building for showing young people where laws are created. The marble floors and elegant elevators have been preserved beautifully.

The Legislative building in MB is a fantastic building with beautiful flowers, and sculptures. We went inside and took a tour that was very informative and is as beautiful inside as outside. I would highly recommend touring the building.
