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

Dr. Frank Albo spent 10 years unravelling the mysteries of the amazing Manitoba Legislative Building. It is Winnipeg's own Da Vinci code and just as fascinating and amazing. This tour is suitable for everyone. Dr. Albo is a great tour guide as he points out all the hidden secrets. A must for anyone from Winnipeg, Canada or tourists to the... More

A great in-depth look inside the mind of the architect of the Manitoba Legislative building. Dr. Frank Albo makes the case that this building was designed a temple. He is entertaining, knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. I would recommend getting and perusing his book before the tour, if possible. I would suggest adults only or older teenagers who have... More

Dr. Frank Albo gives an amazing tour of the magnificent Manitoba Legislature building while explaining the architectural mysticism it contains. I was born in raised in Manitoba and although I haven't lived there in years, I have never been inside that building, let alone known anything about its amazing history. The tour was amazing and Dr. Albo is an entertaining... More

We had some people in from Peru this past winter. They were here for a month and we were trying to pack in as many fascinating things about Winnipeg and Manitoba as we could in the short amount of time we had. This came up as a possibility. We called and let the tour guide know that we would have... More

I have been on the Angels and Demons Tour in Rome and it honestly has nothing on this tour. The tour guide (Professor Frank Albo) is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Over the 1.5 to 2 hour tour you will hear in convincing detail the Masonic influences that drove the construction of the provincial legislative building in 1912-13. The Masonic/Hermetic symbolism is... More

The building itself is beautiful! The history given in the tours is very interesting and it's not pure history and fact rambling, there is myth and superstition involved which makes it fun for everyone! There were some crazy people building things back in the day! Another nice perk is that you can walk along the river the the forks from... More
