Historic Building

It is a relatively small building. The tour is less than 30 minutes to an hour in length. It is worth visiting.

Was able to tour through their "Open Doors" program. Self guided walk thru. It was very rich with political and Royal history.

I went for an "Open Doors" tour of this place a couple of years ago and I really can't stop thinking about the tour, the stories I had heard. Just nice to see a province house so well preserved in one of the oldest cities of North America.

Had a great tour with one of the senior guides lots of information. Only issue was that it was hard to hear all of the commentary as the guide did not have a voice which carried - need to oump up the volume.

If possible, take a tour to learn about Canadian History. You can peek into the amazing library and view the chambers. We felt very welcome.

The day we visited, there was a concert going on. It was fantastic to hear the sounds of the symphony. Legislature was not in session, so we were allowed to visit the chambers and walk right out onto the floor. Great experience for adults, better even for kids! Downstairs provided history and info on Joseph Howe, politician and journalist.

I love to tour historic buildings and government buildings and this fit the bill for both. Very informative tour, beautiful building inside and out, lots of historical events happened there.

You Must visit Province House on a trip to Halifax. The building has been kept to a historically accurate design, while still remaining the seat of the provincial government. The staff are delightful and informative.
