Beautiful mosaic ceilings and floors, paintings and sculptures inside the 400-foot high capitol building are as impressive as its marble, bronze and gold leaf exterior and white tower topped by a bronze statue. Free guided tours are available.

Great architectural tour of the capital building. Good on a hot day. So many artistic flourishes that are pointed out.

Great time checking out the capital. Was nice to explore late in the day because it wasn't very busy. Very pretty inside and the visual aspect and attention to detail is amazing. The garden area is pretty and quiet.

I would highly recommend visiting the capital of the state of Nebraska. It is a very unusual but beautiful building. An excellent example of Art Deco architecture. They offer free guided tours on the hour and the tour guides are very informative, friendly and knowledgeable.

Take a tour and go up to the 14th floor - you will not be disappointed. The building tells the story of Nebraska contained in the mosaics and artwork on the floors, ceilings and walls. Having the story interpreted by Ted was just spellbinding. Having...More

They are self guided tours so you can take as little or as much time as you wish. We spent close to two hours.
