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.

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

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.
