We didn't get to see inside, but the exterior is magnificent. There is a park just in front from which you can watch the light change the appearance of the building as the sun moves.

The parliament building is very nice to look at. The architecture involved is generally not seen in never buildings and is very cool. I didn’t spend a ton of time looking through it but I really liked it. And the history is also cool.
