Provincial Legislature

Provincial Legislature Review

The interior chamber of the legislature, where the premier and elected members govern the province, reflects the taste of the late Victorians. The chandeliers are brass, and some of the prisms are Waterford. Replicas of portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds of King George III and Queen Charlotte hang here. There's a freestanding circular staircase, and the library (506/453–2338) owns a complete four-volume set of hand-colored copper engravings of Audubon's Birds of America, one of only five sets in Canada. Call ahead to arrange a tour.
