We did not take an official tour - just wander around on our own. A very good display on the main floor with a timeline of the major events explained.

We took a private tour of Province House and the tour guide answered questions and took us through the building. The Legislative library was well worth a look. If you have several days in Halifax, I would recommend a visit.

We took the free guided tour of Province House and were glad that we did! It's fun to take tours of the different Legislative buildings, and compare them. The Province House is the oldest. We learned a lot about its history on the tour!

We passed Province House on the way to breakfast at the Bluenose. We were impressed with the building and flanking statues, and inquired about it with the outside security guards. The friendly guards suggested we take a tour inside; we were so glad that we...More
