Just finished a bazillion dollar renovation. Should be worth the visit. Lots of great art work, mostly from around the civil war. Renovation took over 5 years.
It was mostly closed off for the renovations but they would put up plexiglass windows in the drywall so you could get a peek at the inner work going on. I have always loved going to the Capitol but cannot wait to revisit now that they are finishing up.
After its $300 million restoration the Capitol shines like never before. Visitors gain an appreciation of the Guilded Age when agricultural Kansas was a center of national experiments in populist governance and progressive politics. Even if you're not a history buff, the Capitol is truly beautiful and a joy to tour.
Loved the self-tour. Go to the information desk and they will give your kids a big envelope and stamps to decorate it and different cards to put in it that talk about Kansas. They have a cool cage elevator with an operator. The dome is obviously impressive. The House and Senate are beautiful. Make sure you go in the library... More

This is the most beautiful Capitol Building I have ever seen. We tagged along with a high school tour of students from Germany. The tour guide was very informational and patient. Well worth taking the tour.
The Kansas State Capitol is just like a huge museum! Wonderful experience! Don't miss this in life! Just completed a $380 million dollar renovation and is fabulous! The copper throughout the building is amazing, wood work and murals plus the educational value. Bring the kids and all your friends because this is something every age will enjoy. Full access to...

It's really a beautiful building, they're restoring the top so for other few months you won't be able to get on top but the inside is absolutely magnificent! A lot of copper and gold around, the historic paintings are full of meaning and history! definitely a place worth seeing!
We visited here in July 2013. It was a nice visit on a Saturday. The building was pretty much empty, but we couldn't climb the dome because of the on-going renovation. If you can wait, come here after the renovation is complete. I was told that would be sometime in 2014. Call them and check before you come. Overall this... More
