There was no one else there when we went in. Security was extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, an actual guided tour was not until later in the day, however; we still enjoyed the opportunity to look at the displays and architecture.

Spend some time and take the tour of this great building. Built in 1940s the art deco style of the court rooms gives a great impression of the power of the Canadian supreme court. Plan at least 60-90 minutes.

I apologize for the lack of response. I was unaware there was a question. Alas I cannot answer either, as I walked to the court house - I didn't have a car while in Ottawa. Cheers

There is quite a large parking area in front which on a Sunday was empty - not sure how it would be weekdays when courts are in session.
