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

We visited the state capital on a sunday afternoon. Such a beautiful capital! Lots of marble used throughout the building. With a degree in interior design there's so much design motifs used in the structure of the building...amazing! Walk into the restroom, you'll be amazed with all the tile used in there as well! Every year we come to Utah... More

I arrived here late in the afternoon on a Saturday. I was glad to see the building was still open. I was able to go inside to view the displays and artwork inside this building. The painting on the ceiling of the rotunda was something to behold. Photographing this historic building was neat. Since this Capitol building is set upon... More

We paid visits both during the day and night. Although during daytime you could enter the building and see inside, the night view is more worthy if your time only allows you to pick one. You get a great view of the Temple Square and the city. The lights bring out the magnificence of the building. And parking is easier... More

We were on the Urban adventure which took us to the Capitol. Beautiful view of the mountains. Inside we saw great pictures and the marble walls were beautiful. Well worth the steps we walked to get there.
