Tour gives visitors a chance to see some of the beautiful work that has gone into creating this parliament for .Nunavut. It probably could give them a bit more of a sense of the political, social and economic challenges the legislators face.

You won't go wrong to go and see this magnificent place with the amazing art pieces .. tusks for handles and many interesting things to see. If you don't have much time, at least drop by for a quick peek.
