Our daughter had received an invitation to the opening of the Legislature which also included the Lieutenant Governor's reception held at Government House. It was an incredible experience for her (and us as her escorts). The museum was interesting and informative. The reception was lovely and an experience of a life time.

Staff in period costume toured the facility with us and were very knowledgable in sharing the history of the house, its former residents. There are plenty of things to see and we will return to visit the gardens in the summertime and take in a monthly tea service too. Donation admission perfect for travelling families kids can do the scavengar... More

This review is about the people of Regina. Amazeballs! We were only here because a kid in an old Impala pulled directly in front of our speeding BMW. Amazingly, he was not hurt. We weren't either. Kid's family offered to put us all up. Socialized insurance paid for every thing plus. Insurance agent threw us a pool party. Any wonder... More

A piece of history with period furniture (not original) in the display rooms and history written up on signs throughout. Meeting rooms, live music, a small coffee snack corner and it makes for a nice visit. Live music many days.

The outside aspect of the Parliament is of beautiful architecture. The inside thanks to the guided tour allows us to have access to the room of the debates, the bookshop and the rooms with the paintings of former prime ministers. A beautiful visit to do.

We went on Canada Day cause they have a concert, along with horses, clowns, and a bouncy castle. They were also giving out free lemonade, water, cookies, suckers and popcorn with $2 hot dogs. It is very busy when events are there, otherwise not so much. The house is very nice and so are the grounds. The green house was... More

We visited here on Canada Day 1st July for the Lt Governor's Garden Party. There were about 4-500 folk there and it was a great day with plenty of entertainment and stalls...including some clowns. It was a hot day so plenty of drinks were needed. The house is a step back in time and well worth the visit...maybe on a... More

We visited the chamber, the library and other parts of the building and we got a very good explanation about its history and how everything works there. The guide, also explained us about important laws and reforms that were created there that impacted whole Canana. The entrance is free.
