There are tours of the building and many interesting things are learned about the building. The information giving is very good and mostly about who was involved in the in building the Legislative. If you have children take the time to show them.

Stopped by the Legislative building on Broadway for quick visit when driving west in August. My wife and I were both impressed by this and several other stately buildings in the city. I would not have guessed Winnipeg would be home to so many wonderful buildings. All in use, and very well preserved with so much history and so diverse... More

Well worth a visit. Don't rush through. There is lots to see. I have been twice now and still find something new to admire, something new about our history. Take a walk outside and around the whole building as well. There is beauty and history out here as well!

The guided tour is a must! I live in Winnipeg and sometimes you take for granted the architecture in your own city. Our magnificent Legislative Building is one of the cities biggest secrets when it comes to historical significance. I took the Hermetic Code tour and spent a couple of hours with Dr. Frank Albo and found out many interesting... More

Lovely to see such beautiful old buildings still in full use and so well preserved. The gardens are manicured and this is a worthwhile place to visit, take some pictures and walk around.

This gem of a building invokes visions of palaces from yesteryear. Truly a wonderful example of a public building the public can actually be proud of.

If you get a chance to take the tour that Frank Albo does about the Hermetic Code, do it. It is a great tour and very interesting if you like architecture and symbolism in the building. This gives you a new perspective of the legislative building.

There are guided tours on the hour after noon (not sure when they start though). Take one if you can you will learn lots, but if you can't then read below and it gives you most of the highlights. We arrived at the building looking for the ‘Hermetic Code Tour’ listed as a must do at the building by the'Loop'... More
