We spent a good amount of time in the capitol. It was a great way to learn about the history of Utah. It is a beautiful building that gives a great sense of what the Beehive state is all about!

Pick up a brochure at the guard desk if you are there on off hours and you can give yourself a great little tour. Beautiful building with lots of history. It's in need of curation for the artifacts inside which just sit in glass cases with little back story. Explore!

We went to the top floor for the view and weren't disappointed. In fact there was a wedding party having pictures taken so that tells you it's a view worth seeing. Nice friendly people to help us navigate as well. Worth a go.

We actually went twice. The first time was at night and just viewed the outside which was very impressive because you get a get view of Salt Lake City at night. The Capitol is also lit up and that looks nice too. A few days later we got a guided tour in the morning , it took about an hour... More

The interior and exterior is very nice. When i went, the reps were finally ending their weeks long sessions so a lot of spaces were closed to the public for tables and food. I went into some of the rooms to hear them speak but there were no sessions going on. It was still nice to see and I would... More

My family and I have visited close to 30 state capitols and found this building to be the most impressive. It's on top of a hill with a great view of downtown and the surrounding area. The building from the outside always looks brand new. Maybe it's from the white colored rock material used in construction, but we saw no... More

While we did not have time to enter (do not know if allowed to or not), we hiked up the hill just to see the view from there and it was so worth it. If your camera takes panorama's, get it set for that as the city is surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
