Legislative Assembly

Top choice in Iqaluit

It's well worth taking an entertaining free tour (by appointment) of Nunavut's prefab parliament to learn about all manner of Inuit art displayed throughout the building, as well as about the chamber, with its aboriginal touches, such as the igloo-like interior, sealskin benches and seats for community elders. You'll encounter two maces: the diamond-tipped Working Mace and the original, made of narwhal tusk.
