Great place to take your family for so Missouri history. My favorite is the miniatures in the museum area. I used to take my little brothers here all the time as they would change some things from time to time.

I am a little biased since I work in this building. The murals are beautiful and I encourage you to take a tour. If you are from Missouri, please stop by and see your State Rep or Senator.

The tour guide was very informative. The tour lasts 45 minutes to an hour and then you can spend a great deal of time on your looking at the place. Really enjoyed it.

This would have been a better visit if the Capitol building wasn't under renovations. Renovations just began and will last until December 2020. Missouri's Capitol grounds have become a major construction zone, affecting much of the Capitol's exterior stone work as well as around the...More

Very nice building with nice visuals. It was a holiday, so the governor and legislators were not in the building that day. There is a small museum inside that is worth spending a half hour or more looking at. Free tours are also available though...More
