This Capital complex is bigger than the Capital Hill in Wash DC (even without the extension). Its huge. The architecture depicts the past grandeur and power of the olden days' Texas. I was there on Sunday, Aug.13

Sight seeing in this location was wonderful. Free access to the interior of the Capital building. Beautiful architecture and historical items. We were able to see the Senate floor and the art work was wonderful.

Phil, this JUST floated in to me a few minutes ago. When we went it was free and it was about 1:00 PM. However, being a new year, I would call them at (512) 305 8400 as a verification. Several places have had budget cutbacks... More
