Explore the building 

Ontario's Legislative Building officially opened on April 4, 1893, after six years of construction. 

Admire the original Romanesque Revival architecture and building features like stained-glass ceilings, oak flooring, and ornamental iron works. 

Visit the Legislative Chamber where MPPs meet to debate and pass laws—a richly decorated space featuring woodcarvings and hand-painted murals. Stroll the hallways and enjoy various displays and exhibits about Ontario’s Parliament and community exhibits from across Ontario. 

Highlights of the tour include access to the Lieutenant Governor’s suite (not usually open to the public), the Amethyst Room (a committee room), and the Gathering Place exhibit of Ontario Indigenous artworks. 

Outside on the grounds, engage in a scavenger hunt aimed at kids, but guaranteed to be fun for the whole family.
