In the main foyer, visitors can view rotating displays of artwork from the Yukon Permanent Art Collection. Above, 24 mural window panels by West Vancouver artist David MacLagan portray the historical evolution of Yukon.

In the members’ lounge, a series of five hand-stitched panels entitled Women's Tapestries, provide a depiction of women’s lives throughout Yukon’s five seasons. Created in 1975, they were designed by sisters Eve Aldis McBride and Julie Aldis and stitched by thousands of volunteers.

The Departure of Persephone, a three-panel painting by Ted Harrison, graces the entrance to the Yukon legislature. Inside the chamber, Fireweed by Joanne Staniszkis hangs behind the Speaker's chair.

Viewing tours of the legislature and members’ lounge are available; inquire at the main reception desk.
