Guided tours provide a general overview of the history of the Parliament Buildings and the role of the Legislative Assembly.
The guided tour typically includes four rooms:
If you are coming on a day that the Legislative Assembly is meeting, some of the rooms that are normally included on a guided tour will be closed due to government events and activities.
The maximum number people for each tour is 35 students and 5 adults. Larger groups will need to book multiple tours.
Plan to spend approximately one hour at the Parliament Buildings for a guided tour, or 1.5 hours if you will also be observing debates.
If there is a topic of specific interest to your class, please share that information with us on the booking form.
- During the months of May and June guided tours are delivered by college and university students. Our summer guides bring lots of fun and enthusiasm to the tour, but please be aware that they may be new to the subject matter.
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 as part of your visit.
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.
MLAs have very busy schedules so we cannot guarantee their availability on the day of your visit.
Consider inviting your school’s MLA to visit your classroom before or after your visit. Contact information is available here.
