Kansas Captitol Tours

If you are visiting Topeka go take the Capitol Tour and the Dome Tour. Excellent! I take my middle school students each year and they enjoy it a lot as well.

tour guide went through most of the items on the upper levels and of the curry mural, did not mention the old window after the recent remodel and of any of the paintings in the lower levels of the building.

Really beautiful. Wonderful restoration of elaborate senate and house chambers. Very nice tour. Overall, a beautiful building. Be sure to also see the Presbyterian Church across the street!

Absolutely a beautiful building now they refurbished it. Lots to see and free tours available as well. As long as you can ignore most of the government functions it is well worth the visit.

Always a fun visit. Recently renovated areas allow access to what was not seen by tourists only a couple of year's back.

Gorgeous since the remodeling is complete. Do the free tour to the top. The last stairs are metal and you can see through, so it is terrifying if you are afraid of heights. The view is great and the tour is free!

We had a wonderful tour guide at the State Capital building (she was a teacher and was on her summer break). We enjoyed the tour tremendously.

This building is incredibly beautiful. The scenery around it is also quite amazing! The building is very large and has the look to be in some place like DC.

The building is very beautiful with fantastic scenery. I recommend visiting here. You can go all the way up into the top of the tower! A really cool building!
