I am from Boston and I toured the Utah State Capitol with my 89 year old father who was in an electric scooter. The tour is fantastic and highly informative. To visit the chambers and the former home of the state Supreme Court, to learn the history and some of the stories behind the story. The people giving the tour... More

Beautiful building! I love coming up State Street and looking at the main entrance with all the stairs. The stairs inside are stunning! Love the lions on the west side too. It's a shame so many old trees on the grounds were lost a few years ago...

An interesting and informative location for both Utah history and fine architecture. The inside of the building is fascinating.

The drive to the Capitol has a very nice view. When you are walking around the outside of the capitol, you have a great view of Salt lake city valley. the grounds around the capitol are very clean and pretty.

It's absolutely worth going. It's scenic, especially at night with artificial lights. Also, there is a pretty cool view of the city from up there.

the building is pretty cool, the artwork, statues and marble pillars and floor make for a rather impressive looking structure, there are 3 floors and the outside view of the city is even better than when on the roof of the lds conference center, but you kinda have to wonder how much this luxurious government building cost and whether they...

After my visit I would suggest this is a "don't miss it". The imposing building sits high above SLC providing excellent vistas in all directions, across downtown to the airport and beyond to the Great Salt Lake and the mountains beyond. Inside were excellently maintained functional rooms used for Utah state's government and administration - see into the Senate Room... More

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
