We happened to be walking around the Parliament building when they announced they were starting a free tour so we got in line. The tour guide was good and the building was beautiful.I would suggest going when Government was in session when we arrived they had gone home for the night.

Worth peaking inside too, the murals in the rotunda and the bustling "clarks" in this heritage building. Relaxed atmosphere while the business of government goes on around you. LIghted at night, it's so beautiful. There's often a "protest" of some kind so it adds a little colour

This is a great masterpiece work of art and attraction. Facing this magnificient buliding is the marina and pacific ocean. However we visited in July and there was excessive humidity.

Whether you are a local or a visitor, you should not ignore touring this beautiful, historical building. The tour guides were excellent and educational. You may be witness to political demonstrations on the front lawn, but that is to be expected with this Government and it is worthwhile to hear what these activists have to say.

Nice tour, not too long and it's free. With the visit of a surprised visitor from the past joining the tour, nice touch!
