The tour guide was knowledgeable and gave an excellent tour. The little gift shop area was a nice addition. There is a book that can be used for a self guided tour if that is what you desire.

It was fairly empty the day we went however it was an easy walk through the capitol. Luckily they had a scavenger hunt for the kids. They were enamored with that for most of the walk so they could learn while they played a game. Just remember to bring a pen or pencil with you.

We visited before Christmas and enjoyed the significant display of Christmas related decorations and school choirs singing in the rotunda. They also had a surprisingly nice gift shop where we purchased some items for our grandchildren.

This is a great place to visit, especially at Christmas. It's open later in the evening during the Christmas holiday. There are lots of photo opportunities. Free self guided tour books are available too.

Great place to relax and unwind while looking at great views of the city. Safe area with lots of things to do. The River market is not far, and plenty of hotels to choose from in this area.

Very pretty grounds, well worth a visit. The replica liberty bell is quite nice and you can get close up! Enjoyed an hour or so looking around!
