The building open to visitors, beautiful architecture and finishing. So majestic. Located on the hill with great landscape. When you consider some party or celebration, you can hire the monumental hall!!!

This is a beautiful building to tour. I especially liked the exhibits about Utah's history, and movies that were filmed in the state.

This beautiful Capitol Building is at the north end of State Street. It's on the top of the hill & looks wonderful. The murals inside are lovely & there are beautiful gardens & memorials around the building. Go early or it's heaving with coach parties!

We had to come back through Salt Lake City and had already seen Temple Square. We saw the Capitol Building poking out far off in the distance and decided to take the trek. It is quite a walk up the big hills to get there, and we did this in 100 degree heat. However, it was well worth it. I... More

Very impressive architecture and history. The drawback is that part of it is under construction. The murals are awe inspiring and they even have a board room as a museum. The views was breathtaking.

This building is one of the most beautiful Capitol buildings we have seen. We were lucky to have Chloe as our tour guide. She was young and fun, and very informative. The architecture was fabulous...all the marble, all the history. Very ornate. Don't miss this tour if you able to see the Capitol. We are so glad we did.

The capitol building is at the top of the hill, so you can get some great views, especially to the west.

This Capitol building is one of the most beautiful I've been in! The architecture is fantastic! Everything is very grand and detailed -- we all enjoyed exploring the building and going up and down the old fashioned elevators. We didn't do any kind of tour, but there were signs and displays so we felt that we'd gotten a pretty good... More
