"Parliament House" Parliament Buildings & Beehive Tip by grkboiler

  Parliament House
by grkboiler

New Zealand's Parliament House is an interesting place to visit while in Wellington. You can get a free tour that lasts 1 hour. It is well worth your time.

You will see Parliament & Legislation chambers, the Grand Hall, the Maori Affairs Room, and more. The guides are great and tell some amazing stories of events that occurred here, as well as behind-the-scenes info that the public rarely hears. Another interesting fact you will learn about is the foundation of the building and its state-of-the-art earthquake shock absorbers, which are a New Zealand invention.

Tours run on the hour. Weekday hours are 10 AM to 4 PM, Saturdays 10 AM to 3 PM, and Sundays from 12 PM to 3 PM.

Directions: Enter through the front from Molesworth St.
