Manitoba Legislative Building

Dominating the heart of Winnipeg is Manitoba's Legislative Building, an exemplary neoclassical structure that was designed by architects Frank Worthington Simon and Henry Boddington III. The structure is swathed in utter splendor and features endless elements across its impressive exterior and its immaculate interior. But the crown jewel of the building is the Golden Boy, joyfully perched atop the building's central cupola, emblematic of the province's prosperity and all-round progress. Several of the building's features are inspired by mythical figures across cultures, like the Goddess Europa that signifies Canada's European heritage, or Egyptian sphinxes that flank the building's main pediment and act as an ode to the Sun God Ra. Other notable elements of this magnificent building include the Grand Staircase, the rotunda with Corinthian columns, and the Legislative Chamber.

Royal Canadian Mint

The establishment of the Winnipeg branch of the Royal Canadian Mint in 1976 came after years of deliberation, the end result of which was a split between the production of collector's coins and circulation coins between the historic Mint in Ottawa and the new facility in Winnipeg. Designed by the architect, Étienne Gaboury, the triangular, glass edifice of the Royal Canadian Mint rises majestically above the surrounding prairie, like a futuristic ship sailing across a sea of green, its glimmering face reflected in the waters of the pond nearby. The Mint produces all of the country's circulation coins, in addition to those of over 70 other countries. A tour of the facility offers an insight into the intriguing world of numismatics, while the boutique and museum showcase historic currencies, collector's coins and a famed bar of gold.
