Only good part is you can park right in front of the place (but not for long) and walk up the steps to check it out. Sad part is the public can't go in and check it out. Again, why advertise it?

“Short and quiet, but informative”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Not much to see here but the 2 courts and the lobby of this great building, but the tour guide does a great job of explaining the role of the people involved in Canada's highest court. Its a short visit (30 minutes?) and I'd bet not all that busy in the summertime.

“worthwhile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

The free tours are very worthwhile. The guides are interesting and you are allowed to try on robes and sit in the judge's chair in the Federal Court of Appeal for a photo op.
