History Alive! Vignettes

Treat yourself to vignettes this summer. On Monday and Wednesday afternoons beginning July 4, history comes alive at the Legislative Building. Our enlightening tours of the building will be enhanced with short, live vignette performances.

The vignettes feature key figures in Saskatchewan history and reimagine conversations from the halls of the Legislative Building in the early 1900s. Learn fascinating details of Saskatchewan’s history and the building’s construction, and watch the stories come to life. The performances are entertaining for the whole family!

Come to the Saskatchewan Legislative Building main entrance

Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the top of the hour

July 4 to September 7

Our regular tours of the Legislative Building continue to be available seven days a week, except Monday and Wednesday afternoons when the vignettes are presented. Tours are every 30 minutes at the top and bottom of the hour from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. We also offer walking tours of the building grounds and indoor and outdoor scavenger hunt activities for children.

Looking for more fun with Saskatchewan history? Government House is also presenting vignettes about life at the Lieutenant Governor’s residence between 1898 and 1910.
