The bathrooms are available but unfortunately they are downstairs and the wait times are upwards of 15 minutes to use the dirty facilities. All that usually left for information packages are in French, they need to restock more English pamphlets.

This is the visitor center where you line up at 9am each morning to get the free tickets for guided tour of the Parliament. This summer there is a virtual reality kiosk that you can have a virtual 360 tour of the peace towel.

Well informed staff and helpful. Clean, cool (It was 31°) with washrooms and bag checks. This is where you go to get your Parlimentary Tour tickets and arrive early as they go quickly. Doors open at 9.
