I stopped at the capital and you are able to just give yourself a self guided tour. They recently had a restoration. The building is quite beautiful.

We really enjoyed the tour of this states capitol. So many great stories and wonderful history. The architecture was amazing. Our tour guide was great. Fun to see the three branches of government and where they convene!

This is a great structure, especially at night when it's beautifully lighted. Amazing, white capitol building on a hill.

This is a fun place to visit with the family. There are free tours that take you around the Capital and tell you more about the History of the building. The art pieces and architecture are beautiful. One of our favorite places in MN.

After extensive renovations make this building very impressive! From removing the years worth of smoke accumulated over the years reveals wonderful mosaics on the walls and ceilings. The dome is super impressive. Must see!

Imposing on the outside with an exterior of stone blocks -- the interior is truly amazing. Definitely worth the time to walk through if you're in Saint Paul -- more marble than you can imagine and beautifully finished out. I was stunned by the beauty...More
