Brown Bag Lunch Series: Geology of the Manitoba Legislative Building

January 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for a presentation by Dr. Graham Young, Curator of Geology & Paleontology, and Jeff Young describing the Manitoba Legislative Building’s construction and materials, discussing how and where each is used, and explaining what each can tell us about the geological history of Manitoba and the world.

Attendance to the Brown Bag Lunch Series is included with paid admission to any Museum area – the Museum Galleries, the Science Gallery, or the Planetarium.

The Manitoba Legislative Building is an iconic Winnipeg edifice and a famous example of early twentieth century neoclassical architecture.  It is also a structure that possesses a remarkable and unusual geological story, both for its construction and for its diversity of unusual stones and other materials.

The Legislature’s construction was complicated by a number of factors, not least of which was a somewhat problematic local geological setting. The building itself includes at least ten different geological materials, from local bricks and the well-known Manitoba Tyndall Stone, to Butler granite from northern Ontario, black marble from the Vermont-New York region, and Italian Botticino Marble.
