Beautiful building on well-groomed grounds. We took an organized tour which was well-led and we were glad we did. Building is lit up at night and worth an extra walk-by later.

Such a beautiful building! We enjoyed seeing it at night, and during the day. I wish we’d been able to go inside but we had to catch a ferry on the other side of town.

We wandered around a little whilst waiting for the guided tour to start which was very interesting and guided by a very enthusiastic young guy who knew his stuff. A worthwhile way to spend an hour or two particularly if wet outside. We also ate...More

Lots of pictures and historical information. Check times on the website for tours or do the self-guided tour. Note that as a government building there is a security check point to go through, but as this is Canada, they security officers are very polite!
