When we moved to Jefferson City in September 2013, I was thrilled! Jefferson City, which is the capital of Missouri, is beautiful. There is some zoning law where there are no buildings that are higher than the dome of the capitol building. It helps that the building is up on an elevated area. I remember driving north to JC and... More

Take the tour, get a history lesson. This is quite simply the most beautiful Capitol building I've visited so far (even after the great fire of Feb 1911) The building sits on a bluff with a majestic view of the Mississippi River. Couple that with it's lush landscape/grounds and you are in for a delightful feel of what the settlers... More

The Capitol has amazing architecture, art work, a museum and interesting tours. If you are lucky enough to get a tour to the top, be prepared for a long steep climb up narrow stairs but the view from the top is breathtaking. Worth a visit.

The Missouri Capitol was our family's 48th since June of 2013. The Capitol itself is about average with many we've seen. Our tour guide was engaging and informative. The tour focused on the art throughout the building which was used to share about the history of the state. The artwork in the rotunda was not a favorite of ours, but... More

An absolutely beautiful building with a lot of interesting historical information inside. A state capitol building for the state of Missouri to be proud of.

We took a self-tour so had time to wander around the capital at a leisurely rate. There are elevators, but found the steps to be good exercise. Very beautiful building, interesting paintings, history, hands on things for children and big adults. We did hear some of the tour guides talking and they were very informative and interesting. Lots of restrooms... More

My wife and I did a self paced tour of the capital and really enjoyed exploring the old building. We were there at a time when their was hardly any one there so we had plenty of time to really look at all of the art and attractions inside of the building. We caught part of a tour at one... More

The capital is worth spending part of your day if passing through the Jefferson City area. There is always some sort of display setup inside the capital. They also offer tours during certain times. Spring is a good time to visit with the flower blooming and the fountains going. Within walking distance are several places to eat and the Amtrak... More
