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

I just walked in to the Legislative Building and was offered a tour. The young girl who lead the tour was friendly and gave me plenty of information. She kept asking if I had any questions. It was an interesting tour.

Get inspired to learn about the Provincial Government. Tours are available in both English and French by a very knowable guide. Come sit a spell in the magnificent library and peruse a newspaper which come from all across New Brunswick.

This building has a handsome interior. It's instructive for foreigners such as myself to get a glimpse into Canadian provincial legislation (all provinces apparently have unicameral legislatures). The tour is free, friendly, and available in both of the province's official languages (English and French).

Our tour guide was the best! She was funny and informative. Try to see this beautiful building--and hear the slightly shady story behind it. :)

Be aware that you need a passport to go in as there is a security check to get in. However once in it is very interesting and extremely well presented and cared for.
