The Capitol building is open daily, guided tours are only available Monday-Friday 9am-4pm. If you can't make it duing thoses times you can still go and do a self guided tour. The building is open Monday-Friday 7am-8pm and Sat/Sun 8am-6pm. It is well worth the trip to see the inside with all the marble, the fantastic stair cases and the... More

The inside of the Capitol is Beautiful. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. Also a great place for photos.

We are on a hunt for Capitols and this is our 41st. A volunteer tour guide was standing in the rotunda when we arrived (coincidental, not planned) and gave us a great tour and history. She even opened up the Supreme Court Chambers for us. Lots of great history which brought other elements of Utah's founding together for us.

When you are in Salt Lake, the beautiful Capitol building can be seen all over town. Just as beautiful at night as in daylight hours.

Great Utah history lesson on the free Capitol Building tour. Tours are from 9-5 with the last tour at 4 pm. They run about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Taking the tour will give you entry to areas of the Capitol Building you would not be able to see on a self-guided tour. The first floor has an information office... More

In the older part of down town, up on a hill. Beautiful building and grounds. Lots of sculptures and art work. Very majestic looking. Some beautiful older homes close by. Very close to a lot of other sights.

To get to the Capitol Building, you must drive through downtown Salt Lake City. The Capitol is perched on a hill, straight ahead through the heart of the city. The building is centered in a large courtyard with lots of grass for the kids to run. Beautiful architecture, inside and out. We did not take a tour, but spent an... More

It sits on top of a hill and overlooks the city. Very stately looking with a pretty dome and close to downtown.

We enjoyed our scheduled family visit to the Capitol- the building itself was beautiful. We liked the artwork and went around reading about everything we could. I brought my kids ages 7-12 and they liked sitting in on a session and being in the busy building. We took a tour and ended up with a guide who was probably just... More
