The Legislative Assembly Building, Yellowknife Reviews
Interesting place for visitors who want to learn more about the Northwest Territories. There is a cafe too
Excellent tour that speaks about the building design and how it ties into the indigenous peoples of NWT. Amazing to learn that a government body in Canada is built around its people and respect for its indigenous peoples and their wisdom. This is a beautiful building with brilliant architectural design that weaves in different aspects of 11 different nations and languages of NWT. Highly recommended!
The security guy do the introduction and he’s really nice! Also the Christmas atmosphere and setting are great.
Dont forget to go inside the hall and take sime photos. Right stairs up.
Excellent tour. Comprehensive overview of the legislative system and beautiful artifacts/symbols/gifts from across Canada.
