    Large and beautiful building, classical architecture and spacious. The stones that built have fossils! There is a search for fossils in the walls of the building (entertaining to do with children or friends). In the basement there is a circular lounge, if you stand in the Center and you talk about will feel the echo of your voice such as if another person that speaks to you, is something very rare to explain.

    Beautiful building with stunning architecture and green spaces outside. Missed the free tours but there are free self-guide booklets by the entrance, which I was not made aware of by the staff. I only found out when I visited the gift shop at the end of my visit. There is a restaurant inside but is only open until 3:00 pm.

    A beautiful building with a history. Beautiful architecture. The interior is great and they have tours multiple times almost everyday. Worth visiting and learning about it.

Where to stay in Winnipeg

For easy access to entertainment, look north of Downtown to the hip Exchange District--here you'll find some of the city's most pleasant historical architecture, as well as its most happening bar scene. If you want to mingle with the city's hipsters, stay in the leafy riverfront suburb of Wolseley, where organic markets and "fair trade" cafes abound. If you're just planning to visit Winnipeg for a night or two, you can find a range of accommodations close to the airport.
