“Amazing”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

The building is full of surprises. Look for all the fossils embedded in the inside of the stone walls. The grand staircase with the
buffalos lead you up to the "following "star. The woodwork is
magnificent.
The grounds are immaculate with the Golden Boy sitting atop the building.Check to see if guided tours are available as it
points out the symbolism of the building.
A small gift shop is on the main level but the hours of operation are limited.
You must also sign in at security on the main floor.

“Hermetic Code Tour”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This was a private tour organized by our local friends and we went somewhat reluctantly only to find it was a tremendous tour lead by Frank Albo. It is absolutely worthwhile!!

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Though parking can be a bit challenging, the Manitoba Legislative Building and grounds are lovely. The architecture is amazing and has some mystery attached to it (must visit to find out more!!). The stone work is wonderful.

“Golden Boy”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Manitoba Legislative Building is build of limestone and is an excellent example of the grandeur architecture which sits below a golden boy upon its massive dome. As home to the government of the Province of Manitoba, visitors may (while the house is in session) visit the gallery and view the proceedings of the day. The interior of the building is marble and limestone. Visitors are greeted at the grand marble staircase guarded by massive bison, the symbol of Manitoba.

“An amazing building”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

I've been to Doors open Winnipeg and have come to listen to the stories of this building. They have a tour you can do which I have not done yet but on my list of things to do.
