We toured the Legislative Assembly with friends from Fredericton on June 15. It is a beautiful, historic building and our guide was very knowledgeable. He spent as much time as we wanted viewing the different rooms/areas of this building. We recommend local citizens as well as those visiting Fredericton take the time to visit the Legislative Assembly Building.

A beautiful architectural sandstone building. The visitors gallery is limited for space but worth a visit.

I have never seen a parliament chamber that looked so much like a private club. The furniture looks comfortable and indeed, the members were lounging this way and that, not looking very stressed. A recent renovation back to the original colours and materials seems to have been a huge success. This building is a jewel.

For visitors who don't know the workings of Canada this was an interesting glimpse into how things work as well as an interesting tour of an historic building

I had not toured this building in years and took some visitors this summer. I, and they, really enjoyed our tour, especially the explanation of the curtains in the house chamber. Lovely woodwork and unsupported cantilevered staircase.

The young man who showed us around knew a lot about the history and architecture of the building. Since we are from the states he even had to explain their government to us in relation to the queen. The building has been restored to its original state and is beautiful. It has cantilevered circular stairs that go up 3 floors.... More

Take the time to stop in and go through this beautiful building. We had only planned to take a few pictures and then wanted to get a close up picture of the winding staircase, but ended up taking a tour with a college student who is a page there during sessions, and was an incredible source of information including making...

My wife and I wandered into the building to seek information about it and were warmly welcomed to be conducted on a tour. We learned so much about the province, the legislative sessions, and the legislative library (which is open not only to legislators but to the public). The spiral, self-supporting staircase made of native woods is awesome. The legislative... More

The spiral staircase is a real eye catcher, but the rest of the building is worth a look, too. You'll need to sign up for the tour (which is fine as the tour guides are friendly and will generally go as fast or slow as you'd like). I really enjoyed getting to see the different rooms where the law makers... More
