The capitol sits on the highest hill in the city and is very imposing inside and out. While parts of the building is still under restoration, most of it is open to the public.

I have been to Capitol building twice this year. Once for the education rally, and once taking my 5th grade class on a field trip there. There is so much history there. I enjoyed teaching my 5th graders about the building and its art. My 5th graders thoroughly enjoyed the field trip.

This place is beautiful. They keep the grounds up and the views from the steps are incredible, best in SLC.

We made a quick photo stop only. The grounds were attractive & well maintained. Other than our own group we saw few people there.

Well worth the visit. Elevators are available if you are unable to walk up and down stairs. Lots of history, as usual far too much public money spent on it but a great tourist attraction. The seagulls are so high in the dome they have a 6 feet wing span in reality and yet look just normal size!

Not to sound jaded but it's a state capitol building and is quite beautiful but I've seen quite a few state buildings so this is a one time visit - it was quick and I can check off. If you have to choose only a few things to see in SLC, this is at the bottom of my list

Really liked this beautiful building. Inside the painted ceilings, chandeliers, sculptures and architecture are amazing. At the time of our visit, preparations were being made for a wedding at the base of the staircase. What a wonderful venue.

It's a lot of steps, but worth the trip open to the public 7 days a week, only the chambers are closed after hours and on Sunday. The lower lever has a nice Utah History display. The match book marble wall panels are some of the finest I have seen.
