We brought a group to tour and the Missouri State Capitol building has a lot of history throughout the halls. We were impressed with the museum within the Capitol building. Everything was great and well cared for.

Beautiful building with intricate murals. The history museum is very interesting with interactive displays for young folks. The bust gallery of famous Missourians is sort of eerie but very nice. Enjoy the cool and quiet of a weekend visit
