Visitor Safety Protocols

The Alberta Legislature and the Legislative Assembly Visitor Centre are open to the public for registered visits.

To ensure the safety of all guests, the Legislative Assembly implemented enhanced safety precautions and protocols for the Legislature Building and the Legislative Assembly Visitor Centre to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The protocols below contribute to the safety of all who visit or work on-site.

What visitors can do to keep themselves and others safe


Please note that public tours of the Legislature Building and visits to the Visitor Centre require registration.

Make a Reservation


Prior to visiting, take the Alberta Health Self-Assessment. Postpone the visit if feeling unwell.

Wear a Mask and Social Distance

Wear a face covering during the visit and respect the signage and floor markers, which help visitors to safely navigate the spaces. 


Please wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer, which is available in multiple spots in both the Legislature Building and Visitor Centre.

What the Legislative Assembly is doing to keep visitors Safe


Heritage Interpreters wear face coverings and all guests are asked to wear face coverings as well. Tour numbers are reduced from 25 to eight people to allow for appropriate physical distancing, and the duration of each tour is shortened from 45 minutes to 30 minutes to ensure adequate time for enhanced cleaning protocols.  Additionally, parts of the tour route where physical distancing is not possible have been excluded. 


The Legislative Assembly has reduced visitor capacity in its visitor centre spaces and made further adjustments for visitor and staff safety:

  • Borealis Gallery (8 people maximum)
  • Capital Gifts (2 people or one family)
  • Pehonan Theatre (20 people or 5 family units)
  • Agora Interpretive Centre will remain closed until further notice

Heritage Interpreters and visitor centre staff wear face coverings, and all guests are asked to wear face coverings as well. The theatre is cleaned and sanitized after every showing, and the gallery is cleaned hourly. Special effects in the theatre such as wind and fog, have been disabled. Within Capital Gifts visitors are asked to seek assistance from staff rather than handling the merchandise.
