There is much to see indoors and out doors near the Capitol building. The place is beautiful, incredible paintings on walls and ceiling. The for pillars of the building are beautifully personified in sculptures that describes the cities main principals.

Took the free tour. - about 45 mins. Learning about grand buildings like State Capitols is fun. It is always interesting to learn why they are build the way that are, I.e., material specifications, design, artwork, sponsors, etc.; plus, always learn lesser known facts about the state [Utah] in the process.

You can't miss this building...it sticks up high in the north part of the city. Very beautiful, tasteful architecture. I was there on a Sunday so there was no business going on, just had a stroll around the building. It is right across the street from a visitor center which can help you plan what else to do.

The capitol is a must see when visiting Salt Lake City! It is just north of the downtown area. The architecture is truly stunning. Every feature in the building is intriguing.

Just another piece of history and Americana in a new location. Worth the uphill walk if you like cool things

The state capitol is beautiful - it looks similar to the US Capitol and is a great spot for photos. It's easy to park on the street, and across the street is the old Council Hall, also good for a few photos.
