Tours are offered between 9:30 am and 3:00 pm PST, Monday to Friday. We are closed on statutory holidays.
The maximum number people on each tour is 35 students and 5 accompanying adults. Groups that are larger than this will need to book multiple tours.
School groups may be allotted 20 minutes in the Public Gallery to observe debates when the Legislative Assembly is meeting. Make sure you book using the Tour with Gallery option if you wish to observe debates.
Length of Visit
Plan to spend approximately 1 hour at the Parliament Buildings for a guided tour or 1.5 hours if you will also be observing debates.
Please let us know in advance if you have any time constraints so that we can accomodate your schedule.
If you are coming on a day that the Legislative Assembly is meeting, please be aware that rooms that are normally included on guided tours may be closed for government events and activities.
Tour times, routes and schedules are subject to change without notice and tours may be cancelled at any time due to events or operational requirements.
There is no public parking on the property, but there are many options nearby. Please visit our Visitor Parking page for information.
The Tour Office is not able to store bags or backpacks. Students will be required to carry their belongings during the tour.
Members of the Legislative Assembly
We will notify your school’s MLA of your visit and invite them to meet with your class during the tour.
Please note that MLAs have very busy schedules so we cannot guarantee that they will be available at the time of your visit. You are encouraged to invite your school’s MLA to visit your classroom when the Legislative Assembly is not in session. Contact information for MLAs is available here.
