We loved it! Seeing the view from historical eyes, walking the halls where our forefathers walked was awe inspiring experience. Would like to return again someday.

I'm from Georgia, and I've been to a lot of state capitols, this one is very interesting. I was a little disappointed that the Citrus Industry wasn't shown to be as important as it was to the history and future of Florida. I know this is a more political aspect of Florida's history and there was very little mention of... More

Those of us who love history and seek it out are sometimes more enthusiastic about it than those curating or who's care it's in. We are sometimes disappointed by that. That is not the case at the Old Capitol. You can see it in every detail, and in every face there. Great architecture, great history. It's alive.

My son and I toured the capitol and really enjoyed it, but since we arrived late, we had a very limited amount of time to completely see everything. I always love learning about the past and would love to return when I have more time to take in everything they have to offer.

Very interesting and well set out. Disappointed not to be able to see the Chambers on the second floor because of renovations which spoiled the visit somewhat. The small guide is good and helpful for getting around.

As a native Floridian and a Social Studies teacher, I was really excited about seeing the historic Capitol. I was not disappointed. The staff is awesome and will take the time to talk to you about a little of the building's history (such as the different renovations and additions the building went through during its history). They offered my son... More

Visited the "Old" Capitol building this morning. The attendant at the front desk was friendly and welcomed us. Then he had to tell us that a good portion of the the building was being renovated. After visiting several other historic capitols this was a bit of a disappointment. There was a brief but interesting film that we watched first. Other... More
