Fantastic building. The capitol grounds include a statue to Andrew Jackson as well as burial spot for John Knox Polk. Also a statute for U.S. Senator Edward Ward Carmack, who was shot to death in the early 1900's for a newspaper editorial.

When we visited, there was a protest going on so we were only able to see the outside! It was gorgeous!

I was surprised by how much of the capitol was accessible to the public. It's situated on top of a hill with great views of the city and the market. Worth a visit if you're exploring the city.

Staff available to provide informative tour of the Capitol. We enjoyed the freedom to casually walk around the whole building and view the chambers. Would like to see change regarding the heavy celebration of Nathaniel Bedford Forrest (KKK) and Andrew Jackson (trail of tears).

Tennessee doesn't mess around when they built their capital on a hill...it was more like a mountain. An imposing building designed to be well defended. First level was dark and foreboding, but the second level was grand and beautiful.

Set on the prominent hillside it looks dominating though more so once one climbs to the upper floor balconies. Could not call it magnificent and the squabbles between sponsor and architect must have held them back at the time. It was a good, guided tour....More

No there is not a dress code, but one should not be required for a visitor, of any age, to the State Capitol. The Capitol is a very historic building and I hope he enjoys his visit. If he has a guide, have him ask them to... More
