Parliament House is an iconic A-frame building in Papua New Guinea, based on traditional Spirit Houses.
It is open to the public on week days (except for public holidays) and Parliamentary staff are available to do guided tours for groups of visitors. If you live in Port Moresby or are a visitor to Port Moresby make sure that you visit Parliament – it is certainly worth the effort.
