Almost the tallest place in ND, either walk or ride to the top for a look around and a visit to the tallest cafe in Bismarck!

It is one of the four skyscraper state capitols in USA as mentioned by the capitol guider. At the mean time, it does not have dome. There are some more interesting facts about the building and history.

We just had the morning to visit so we walked through the arboretum, gardens, among the buildings and had nice stroller trails the whole time. Great spots for photo ops and even saw a family doing a photo shoot on the lawn in front of the capitol. Didn't get inside for a tour - maybe next time.

The North Dakota State Capitol was constructed on a tight budget during the 1930s after the first state capitol was destroyed by fire. It doesn't look particularly interesting from the outside but a guided tour will tell you what North Dakota is all about. The views from the top floor are excellent and the tour guide was very knowledgable. There... More

This is one of the only capitol buildings in the USA without a dome. It was completed in 1934, in the midst of the great Depression, after the capitol burned down in 1930. It is constructed of incredible stonework, metal and woods, many of which are simply not available anymore. It is part of a park-like ground that has a... More

I always enjoy an opportunity to visit our state capitol. Love the architecture. It's a gem. I only wish use of the front door and front steps was promoted and highlighted.

From the outside this building looks like just another office block but don't be put off by this. We did the tour and the inside of the building is very interesting with some beautiful features and a lot of history. Our guide was excellent, giving us just enough information about the history and main features of the building. If you... More
