“Beautiful building.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Worth touring. This building is beautiful inside. We got to see the two rooms where most everything is done. The Blue Room was inactive so we went in, took seats and listened to the tour guide. The Red Room was in session so we did have an opportunity to sit in for a few minutes and hear what was being discussed. (unfortunately I do not understand French)

No fee for this tour but you do need a photo ID to get in.

“Don't overlook”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The Quebec Parliament might be easily overlooked if you are in a hurry to visit the Citadelle, Upper Town, Lower Town, Frontenac and try to grab a place on the free Cirque du Soleil show (if winds permit). But it is indeed very worthwhile. The building is beautiful and the guides will tell you interesting facts about Canada and Quebec history - and even answering provocative questions. Tours are well organized and security procedures are not a great hassle.

“NOT much to see”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Inside this beautiful building with its Gorgeous gardens, the public areas are pretty limited and forgettable. two parliament rooms with elaborate woods, desks and chairs as one would expect in a working government building, two hallways with displays on French of history and prime ministers, two great staircases with stained glass windows and a first rate restaurant which is closed on summers.....and yes, once past security that's it! So if you want to do this select the TOUR which makes it better and takes you I to the rooms with good background. otherwise it is missable.

“well worth your time”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Quebec parliament building is one of the more beautiful buildings of its kind. Both the exterior and interior are ornate in a very tasteful way.

We really appreciated the free tour given in English. The guide was very informed and gracious, providing us with interesting facts about the architecture, decor, and uses of the different rooms. We gained a better understanding of the Quebec perspective through this tour.

Be sure to fit it into your schedule while in Quebec!
