  • Take the tour! There are so many interesting facts about the architectural design of the building and how some old superstitions were incorporated. It's a beautiful building, easy to access. Parking is near by and the grounds are lovely to wander on afterwards, there are memorials to discover, fountains to see and other historical buildings are near by. A must see in Winnipeg!
  • Incredible grounds and building, it'll ignite cultic mysticism in anyone who catches a tour and makes a beautiful centerpiece for a Canadian city with a long history. Start a date at the forks and make your way to the gardens and walk around trying to spot all the Egyptian symbols and try to find what some people think is the "Ark of the Covenant"
  • Historic building with great stonework. Very well maintained on the outside and gleaming shine on the inside. Giant bronze bison statues. Take a look up and down then you'll see the legislatives mystery. Tours available. Beautiful fountain on the south lawn. Ample parking and close to other downtown historical buildings.
  • Really neat marble and granite building. First class everything.
  • Many interesting facts and just a great tour.
