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 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!
