Manitoba Legislative Building and Grounds - Self-Guided Tour

The Manitoba Legislative Building is a priceless monument in the true sense of the term, since it is unlikely that it could ever be reproduced today. Construction of the neo-classical style building began in 1913, based on a collective vision to erect an imposing structure “not for present delight nor use alone…
but such as our descendants will thank us for.”

As the primary physical focus for Manitoba’s sense of its history and identity, it is natural that a number of statues and plaques commemorating notable people, events and historical themes are located on the grounds.
