“We love the security guard "Robert"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

...and the building - it is very interesting, with a large collection of aboriginal and northern art.

Most of all we liked Robert, who enthusiastically told us about the building, the legislature, the history and the region. It added color and interest to an area (Northwest Territories) that few will ever visit, and we thoroughly enjoyed.

A very unique building and worth a visit. The trails and lake around the area are beautiful and it was nice to stroll the grounds.

“Cool building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

It's a neat building but the tour guide's script could use some flushing out...of course, it might just have been our tour guide. Definitely worth the trip and the tour.

“Very informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you want to learn about Canada's northern heritage, check out this tour that operates daily at 10:30am. The building is beautiful and a lot of symbolism embedded within every aspect of the legislative assembly.

“Lunch at LAB”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Beautiful, cold day had a welcome break for lunch at the cafeteria at the LAB. Soup was tasty and a view of the gardens (under snow) splendid.
