Very nice inside. There's plenty of spaces to sit if you are visiting with one of those people that likes to read everything. We brought 2 teens who got bored after a while. best advice is to take the elevator to the top and work your way down. Walking downhill sure is better than walking uphill.

The Legislative Building, located in the heart of Winnipeg most definitely, has to be classified as one of the Province of Manitoba's Crown Jewels.

You can book or participate in tours with guides that will show... More
