My wife and I traveled from south Florida to explore Tallahassee and see the state capitol. The view from the top floor is amazing, if you get a chance there are tours of the old capitol which is the smaller building located in front! Filled with great Florida history and artifacts.

Te new capitol is nice to see and the best part is the 22nd floor. You can see Tallahassee in all directions and often has art work on the walls. The historic capitol or old capitol is completely restored and has docents to tell you as much or as little you want to know. There is an interesting story about... More

So much to see. Most enjoyable was the 22nd floor and the vista it provided. The chapel was amazing. Good to be able to see the Senate and House meeting rooms.

It is such a beautiful building and it is really neat to be able to see where the Governor's Office is located and where the Senate and House of Representatives meet. Too bad they weren't in session but it was still exciting to see. Definitely visit the 22nd floor which is the very top of the Capitol building. Up on... More

I honestly spent little time in the new capital. I basically went through security (just like an airport) and took the elevators to the top. (You take one elevator almost to the top, get out on that floor, switch elevators and then can reach the observatory.) During the week when I was there it was empty so I had the... More

Was very disappointed to see the "new" capital. While the history is interesting, this could be any high-rise office building anywhere.

The views from the top of the building were impressive but since it is closed in with glass windows and carpeting it feels more like you are at an airport than the top of a Capitol building.

Interesting history. Good photographs capture moments in time important to the cultural, geographical and political history of the state. Artifacts and other memorabilia 'flesh' out the story of how FL grew, developed and changed over time from a distinctly Caucasian perspective. Harsh realities are glossed over or omitted but otherwise a good, if incomplete, portrayal of life in this distinctive... More

Unfortunalty i didnt get to go inside(only open M-F). However for anyone who has grown up in Florida, I feel seeing the Capital is a "must". The building is very impressive, and great for photo opportunities.
