This is a free, 1/2 hour tour, and well worth doing for any Canadian or anyone interested in law, architecture or democracy. Really interesting. Don't go during the lunch hour as they are closed from 12 to 1 pm.

It was a pleasant trip and visit to this very nice building. They offer 1/2 hour tours of the building, and the court rooms. The tour guides provide an informative visit.

We just had a look of the historical building while passing through the guided tour bus from the open top of the hip on/off bus.

I apologize for the lack of response. I was unaware there was a question. Alas I cannot answer either, as I walked to the court house - I didn't have a car while in Ottawa. Cheers
