Did a self guided tour and managed to see all the important parts. It is a lovely building outside and inside. The paintings are amazing. Love how they preserve all the old chambers. A real sense of history!

Drive right up to the door and there are two visitor parking places that are very convenient. The doors are open so walk right in and look UP!

You need to go to the capital's website for this info, they do not hold session every year.
