Get the guided tour. It is more than getting to know about a building. It is a history lesson told in the context of the lives and times of the first Premier of Alberta and his wife and children. Also get to know a little about their housekeepers. The times dictate you know a bit about WWI and its impact on their lives. The tour was a trove of information and our guide was ready to answer all manner of questions ranging from period architecture to the personalities of the central characters.

I love taking family and friends here. The tours they give are fantastic. Everytime I go I learn something different. Each tour guide has their own take. They all share different stories. The grounds are always well kept, whether summer or winter. Parking can be pricey. But the tour is free and sooooo worth it. In the summer you can take a picnic lunch and enjoy the flowers. In the winter especially around Christmas the lights are phenomenal.

Recently I was treated to a glimpse of Alberta History. The free tour was led by an excellent guide named Melina. Her upbeat delivery of the facts and history of the Government House made the tour fun and very informative. The room that displayed paintings that represent all the provinces was cool. I would recommend a tour of Government House and then take in the wonderful view of the North Saskatchewan River.
