A Historical & Beautiful building with so much of history. Very well maintained, although very old. Looks so amazing when its lit at night. Even if you do not go inside, (we could not due to lack of time) it is worthwhile coming over to...More

Lots of pictures and historical information. Check times on the website for tours or do the self-guided tour. Note that as a government building there is a security check point to go through, but as this is Canada, they security officers are very polite!

There are several free tours of the parliament buildings during the week day. The building is lovely, with many stained glass windows, wood panels and staircases. The boilings are lit up at night and are lovely to see.

We visited the building at day at night. It’s definitely an eye catcher and you can’t miss it once you at the inner harbor. At night it looks even better since the entire front of the parliament building is lighted by many little bulbs! Looks...More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We knew nothing about the history beforehand and our guide Nicholas made it a rich learning experience, mixing information and humour in perfect proportion. Afterwards we enjoyed an excellent (and very reasonably priced) lunch in the Legislative...More
