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.

Stopped at the state house at the recommendation of a coworker. The building is very impressive and the view from the tower is outstanding. They do have tours which I missed but you can still enjoy your visit without one.

In Lincoln for the Ducks v Husker football game a couple of days early. The capitol is the second highest capitol building in the country. Got curious and visited. Good history lesson on Nebraska.
