We went just to look at the outside, and ended on a very useful and informative free tour of the council chambers which also gave a good insight on Canadian history and the relationship between Quebec and Ottawa. Well worth doing. Tours are in either English or French.

Well worth a visit - our guide was excellent and I left with a much better understanding of why everyone in Quebec speaks French and not English - despite General Wolfe sacrificing his life for England and winning the crucual battle on the Heights of Abraham.

Statues of historical Quebec figures in niches across the face of this approximately 6 story bldg are arresting and very photogenic. The vegetable garden in the front is large and comprehensive. The floral beds especially photogenic, not to mention the fountain.

The tour of parliament is free, it takes only 30-40 minutes, and is very interesting. The guide will tell you all about the very historical, beautiful building and how the Canadian government system works. You can also have lunch there , or, there are many cafes in the area.This was time well spent.

Parliament buildings around the world offer such a great perspective of the valued history of their society. L'assemblée nationale is definitely one of the most cherished in North America. Make sure you have time to have a meal at end of visit and rub shoulders with old ministers.

Wow! The best free thing we could have done in Quebec. The tour and buidling were amazing, reviewing the French, British, and Canadian periods of Canadian government. Fascinating. Also, the restaurant is to die for. I think they are only open for lunch, but we had some of our best meals here. Highly recommend.

I was amazed that they give free tours in both French and English inside the Parliament. The tour guide was extremely well spoken and informative. Pictures are allowed, there is so much beauty in there, pictures turned out great.

If you want to see what government should be like from the interior to the exterior this is a must see. We took both tours, the grounds and the parliament and were impressed especially in comparison to what is currently happening in the US. They have statues of past leaders and important people and to be among them you must... More
