Interior of the Ledge

Be sure to see the grand large sculpture which is amazing and created by a number of Inuit artists whom I admire and know.

You won't go wrong to go and see this magnificent place with the amazing art pieces .. tusks for handles and many interesting things to see. If you don't have much time, at least drop by for a quick peek.

I was worried I'd get a little uninterested since the word "legistlative" doesn't necessarily highlight "fun", but I was wrong. The tour featured beautiful artwork, interesting general information and overall worth it. Recommended if you're in town!

Incredible architecture and was worth the visit. The guide was nice and cute. Wish I could have heard more about the history of how Nunavut was formed and how the area is really governed.

Take a free guided tour, which happens at 1:30pm everyday during the summer tourist season. Just show up; no reservation required. Sit on the speakers throne and marvel at how comfortable seaskin is. You will also learn about the symbolism of all the art inside the house, most of which were gifts from other provinces and territories.

Interesting 10min - just step inside the building and see some interesting art of Nunavut and the Assembly chambers - checkout the seal skin bench in the hall!

The tour they give is really informative. The diamond was my favourite thing to see. The seal skin seats are one of a kind. The carvings and artwork are amazing. You really have to book a tour when you are going to Iqaluit.

There is not an overly lot of things to see in Iqaluit and this is well worth the stop. Located up the hill from 4 corners, before the hospital building. Brightly coloured outside with noteable art in the main lobby and of course it is FREE! I have not seen any tours offered? so must be a summer thing?
