I've been to this place several times already and it's always fascinating to see the details of the sculptures inside and out. They have history behind which is good to know and self guided tour which is great for those who would like to travel by themselves. I highly suggest to follow the self guided tour booklet which is available... More

Sat through a session of parliament. Gave a good lesson on how a parliamentary government works. The back and forth between the majority and minority parties was fascinating. The ceremony shows up the difference between the US and Canada. Also, the building is magnificent.

From the amazing bison on each side of the stairs, to the echoing centre, history abounds. Be sure to take a tour to understand all the amazing parts. This is a must see!

I've been here a few times for school field trips, and it is an interesting location. It's nice to walk around! I also had my engagement pictures taken here.

Beautiful building surrounded by gardens and green spaces. Lingered by the steps to do people watching.

Visits to legislative buildings can be rather dull and involve tedious lines, arrangements security delays. But not in Winnipeg! Here you just walk up the big steps, sign in, and you're enjoying the architectural gem seconds later. The (free) guided tours are worth the time, as you'll learn more about the cool history and features. The grounds and gardens surrounding... More

After a pleasant 1km walk up from the Fort Gary Hotel, we noticed the Golden Boy on top of the cupola, then the flower gardens surrounding Queen Victoria statue. Up the steps and just inside, we signed a guest book, presented our passport, then with the ID tag, had full access to the building. Our goal was the giant marble... More

Beautiful place, beautiful location to walk by. There is a trail that the office of tourism propose which is call "The loop" and it's worth doing it.

I was very impressed with both Legislatures I visited while I was on my trip to the Prairies. The Manitoba legislature was full of great architecture and seemingly many hidden tidbits of information. I was quite impressed by the pristine conditions of their gardens and like the open nature that was welcoming to visitors. For instance, I saw a baseball... More
