Open to the public during business hours. Spectacular architecture, art, trimmings - one of those public buildings no government could afford to build again today.
We had a coupe of hours to kill before attending a Wisconsin Badger event so my wife and I took our seven year old son. He bemoaned the fact that we were going to tour the building. Upon arrival we learned the three of us would be the only tour participants. We received the royal treatment and my son had... More
If you happen to be near Madison, WI and have just a 1/2 hour or more, you should step into the Wisconsin State Capitol Building in the center of downtown Madison, WI. It is, absolutely, one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever been in. The state spent several jillion dollars over a 10 year period completely restoring the... More
Capitol is great but if you go in the summer you can go up to the sixth floor and walk around the dome - which gives you an incredible view of Lake Monona and Mendota, the Monona Terrace Convention Center, down State Street to UW-Madison, East Wash towards Milwaukee, and more. The museum at the base of the deck is... More
The Capitol Building is a big place of history in Wisconsin. It is open most of the time so it is accessible to the public. My wife and I really enjoy it as a backdrop to the farmers market, Art fair on the Square, going downtown to the Overture Center, or just a night out on State St. It is... More
A public treasure with the best views in the city. Take the guided tour if you have the time, but don't miss the observation deck which is open during the day. Weekdays at noon if you are lucky you can watch (and join) our world famous "Solidarity Singers," energetic and involved citizens who come to exercise their first amendment rights... More
Our Wisconsin Sate Capitol is the most beautiful in the entire country. Good luck trying to quietly examine Wisconsin's history under the dome. When there last there were numerous protesters chanting, singing and being obnoxious. Doesn't matter what side you are on; the protestors are from every far right and far left group. So sad. We hope after the Holiday... More
This building never ceases to amaze- I've been there many times and I never get sick of it. It really is a wonderful building, and they give great tours. If I remember my tour correctly, the dome is a little shorter than the Capitol in DC, but I think the volume (cubic feet) of the rotunda is bigger than the... More
Top five reasons to visit the State Capitol building: 1. The architecture, particularly the central dome, is bold and beautiful. You just don't see buildings built of this much stone and grandeur very often. And the interior detail in every hall and room is thoughtful and ornate. Even the bathrooms are cool (don't miss them). 2. The observation deck on... More
Spend a least an hour here. It is one of the most beautify Capitals l in the country. The architecture and layout are marvelous. Best of all it's free. And make sure you take a tour to learn the history and the stories.
