Take time to visit National Parliament House, the country's parliament building that combines old and new architecture.

  • Went for a visit and also got a tour of the Parliament House. Interesting to see the collection of butterflies of PNG. The outside of the building looks pretty interesting too.

  • Apart from the Parliament with its lovely PNG art and carvings, the grounds are worth a walk around too. Ponds and sculptures are spread out and are nice to see. Also take note of the impressive art....  more

  • As a Papua New Guinean it was truly an honour to visit the House of Parliament and tour the place. It was designed in a way to show unity and diversity through the various crafts and designs from all over Papua New Guinea.
  • Papua New Guinea. This land is promising. Natural Resources is abundant here. Trees as much as 3-4 persons can hold. Large Tuna and big aquatic fishes. Rich in Cultures, Customs and Traditions, it here. All countries start from small beginning, trials and hardship. I think, progress is coming. My first entry to this county was 2006. At this moment, some things are happening in Port Moresby. Many more are needed, but it is changing and developing. Let's give this country a time and support their local leaders. For this building, this Parliament House speaks of the PNG Culture. For development and development to come. 5 stars.
