It is a beautiful building and I enjoyed walking around the grounds and the building. I live in a city with one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the country (I am partial) but it still was an enjoyable visit

We went here with our family today. There was a wedding so we couldn't see every part. We saw a lot of the place. There amazing tile floors and marble everywhere. There was history of Utah in the basement. We enjoyed the grounds as well. We would go back.

We parked along the road and walked the entire grounds and the Capitol Building on the day we visited. The grounds are absolutely lovely and meticulously maintained. The interior of the building is beautiful and there is Marble everywhere! Well worth the visit.

I love huge buildings with nice architectural designs. This building is very much visible and one of the best landmarks of Salt Lake city.

The paths are very beautiful during season changes, and there is a lovely inner courtyard with a fountain and gardens that most visitors miss. Great views of the valley.

Well yes, it's the birthplace of local government. Here is a beautiful building. Inside filled with great staircases and some beautiful stone work. Here the local heroes of the Mormon lore are guarded and revered..... Go see it. The architecture itself it's worth the time.

I don't know where else to put this review. None of the businesses or private attractions deserve a bad review because the City of SLC does not do a good job of curbing their aggressive junkies. All cities have problems, but this seems to just be ignored. There seems to be a junkie/homeless to police officer ratio of 7 to... More

Enjoyed reading history inside the Capitol and looking at beautiful murals and construction of the building. They have some areas closed of for construction activity so did not get to see everything. Also house and senate chambers were closed.

The capitol building has a lot of gorgeous marble and art reflecting the history of the state. We did climb a lot of stairs. I do not know if there was an elevator - our tour guide took us up the stairs. The building is lovely if you like this kind of thing. At the end of the day it... More
