“Beautiful building, great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

The building really is gorgeous, and full of remarkable details. The tour guide was knowledgable and friendly.

Be aware that the dome is closed until sometime in 2015, so you can't go higher than the museum in the attic.

“Free Tours - don't miss out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

This is a beautiful building well worth the visit but what puts the icing on the cake are the free tours offered regularly during weekdays. They take approximately 30 to 40 minutes and are a really nice filler for when you need a short break between visiting museums or generally want to get away from the downtown buzz.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

In January, 2012 I attended a speech by the governor. As always, the Capitol is beautiful inside. There are guided tours every 1/2 hour during the week. Guides take people to places in the building; and point out unusual characteristics of the building. If not with a guide; it is o.k. to explore on your own. The cupola on the 4th floor is like the State's attic. It is accessed by a narrow starcase in the northwest corner of the building. Ask a guide or guard to point this out. It is worth the climb.
Parts of the Capitol building are under repair at this time. Be aware that some areas might be closed for the moment.

It is a beautiful historical building and interesting. Have enjoyed seeing quilts there and just hearing about the building of this building.
