been here a few times... always amazes me the architecture and the history. The rotunda is the main attraction with the star on the floor below that "follows" you. when you go to floor below and stand in the middle of the star, you can hear from every direction. give it a try

Fun to learn about some of the ins and outs of the building itself. Beautiful building as well as the landscaping/garden. Kids will have fun hearing their voices as they speak from the center of the 'Black Star' (which you'll have to take the tour to learn about.) ;)

This is a unique building within Winnipeg and worthy of the time it takes to go on a tour. Not only is it wonderful to view externally especially with the Golden Boy on top but the rotunda inside and the various levels of the building are interesting as well. I heard concert in the rotunda and the sound was quite... More

Enjoyable for couples or families. Walking and stairs involved. Good for historical value. It doesn't compare to the Alberta Legislative Building and grounds where thing beautiful polished brass.

I had the most interesting tour with a knowledgeable guide. She pointed out many points of interest that even as a local resident I was not aware of. Did you know there is a story behind why there are 13 lights, and other things in groups of 13. Take the tour and find out.

Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. Loved the architecture both inside and out. Interesting facts and I loved being able to actually have access to the legislative assembly where all the action happens! It is a quick tour and I would recommend it!

This building was built in the early 1900's and for any tourist to our fine city, it is a must-see. First of all, the grounds are impeccable. Statues of historical figures and a memorial to the holocaust is situated on the lawns surrounding the building. The Golden Boy statue is on top of the building and can be seen from... More

Located on a huge green space off Broadway, the legislator has free visitor parking, but the number of spots are limited. The road behind and down 1 side are also 1-way streets, so best to research before. The building is open daily for self-guided tours and hourly guided tours are available during the summer months. The gardens are well maintained... More

If you're interested in architecture, history or unique stories the tour had it all. You can tour on your own but with a guide you get a lot of insight without having to read all the information. I suggest the guide, but you may have to wait a few minutes for the next one.
