It's a beautiful building, even if they don't want to tell you how to get in. We persevered and found a door. Did a self guided tour and the chamber is nice. Overall building is about like most state capitols.

This capitol building is BEAUTIFUL! Tours start on the hour (except at noon) and walk you through this amazing building. The nation's only one-house (unicameral) legislature is housed here, along with the governor's office and the Nebraska Supreme Court. All three branches of government in one building! The marble, the artwork, the mosaics are impressive. It's open, not flanked by... More

Beautiful Historic Building. I love to visit a couple times a year to enjoy the artwork, the courtyard and the view from the top. I also got married in the courtyard and loved the location.

I actually went there to pick up something from the Governor's office. I love the architecture there, but it is so dark! I think it would suck the life out of me to work there, it just isn't a bright and cheery place. However, if they changed the lighting and made it bright, I think it would really take away... More

The guided tour is very interesting, not too long, and just enough information. Very well done. The art work, paintings, mosaics, tapestries, etc. is just fascinating to see. Don't skip going to the top of the tower, either! We really enjoyed our tour!

If you get a chance to visit Pinewood Bowl Theatre in Lincoln Nebraska then do so!! its fabulous! We saw Ray Lamontagne perform there and it was great. Not only is the sound great and the stage set up is superb, just being in such beautiful surroundings and experiencing fabulous music in an outdoors setting. The vendors are extremely friendly...

Too much history to pass up, despite the nickname, it is a pretty cool building to tour. When you are in Lincoln you need to go.

When visiting states, I try to take a capitol tour if I can and this was a good one. It really captures the character of what I found in the state. A tip: the signage is not good and it took us a while to find where to go in on a Saturday. It is on the second floor of... More
