The manitoba legislative building was designed by a Freemason. It has hidden secrets that are revealed by the historian Dr. Frank Albo, on one of the most interesting and entertaining tours of architecture you will ever attend. Highly recommended! We booked through Heartland Travels.

If you enjoy the historic design of structures with strong Masonic influence, you’ll find it here. A statue of Mercury lies atop the structure along with other significant symbols related to Greek, Roman, and Egyptian history. Read up before you go or locate a guide

This building is amazing inside and out. Our guide explained the history of the building. The stone work in this building is a work of art. Well worth a visit. The building is open everyday, you have to check in at the front desk.
