“Whatever you do, don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This amazing building was one of the best Legislative buildings I have ever seen. The beautiful marble staircase, the enormous buffalo statues, and the 'golden boy' tops the building. This building is surrounded by some lovely flower gardens and statues. A beautiful building and grounds you should include in your travels. The guides were fun and informative.

“A building that all Manitoban's should be very proud of!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

This building is remarkable, both in it's architecture and in it's history. There is much symbolism and mystery as you explore and learn about the various chambers and areas. Incredible to look at some of the limestone blocks and see a fossil looking back at you. Lots to see and learn about!

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I am so glad I took the time to walk down from the forks area to see this beautiful building. Only thing which could have been better if the river walk hadn't been under water.

“Nice architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Visited on the weekend of the Doors Open. The guides are excellent and gave a good perspective on the history of the building.
A bonus was the Pride Parade that started from the legislature!
