Nice place

It's definitely a nice place that should make Canadians proud. Provincial government business is held there, but do not let it intimidate you into visiting the site. It's worth it.

You need to have a government-issued ID to take the tour. I planned to come back with mine, but ran out of time. Was told there is a good cafeteria here, too, but open hours were limited.

We loved the tour provided by Parliament Building. Our guide, Rosaire, who is very knowledgeable and has sense of humor. He makes the tour vivid and interesting. The Parliament restaurant open for public from Monday to Friday for breakfast and lunch. Not only the outside, but also the inside of the building is very worth to see it. Definitely you... More

We had a view of Parliament from our room and also loved walking around in the snow. The building is beautiful and looked lovely with the big christmas trees out the front.

The tour through the parliament building brings you into the main part of the building and lets you see the large meeting halls. Please be aware that you have to undergo a security check before you're allowed on the tour (photo ID required), tours are available on French and English and last 45-60 minutes. We had a group with some... More

Check out the fountain donated by the owner of simon stores. It truly is a magnificent fountain and while you're there check out the battlefield park.

The 45 minute tour is free, but you do need to make a reservation and bring photo ID. There is a choice of an English tour or a French tour. The quide provides an overview of the history and workings of Quebec Parliament. You can also make reservations to eat in the dining room (when Parliament is in session, the... More

As we didn't make it to Parliament till after they had closed for the day we didn't get to go inside. However we did get to explore the grounds and it was worth it. They have multiple statues scattered on the building and on the grounds which were probably more fun than they should have been to interact with and... More

Being off-season, we ended up having a private tour of the Quebec Parliament. Only about half an hour, but very interesting and recommended. There's a café and also a restaurant called Le Parlementaire which is open to the public (reservations needed).

Unlike Ottawa, there didn't see to be a place to park, get out, wander around, or actually enter the building.
