We had a wonderful visit. Not to be missed is the exhibit on Joseph Howe and his trial to secure freedom of the press. The building is beautifully maintained and the staff super friendly.

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.
