“Beautiful Capitol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I have been to over half of the State Capitols and Hartford is certainly one of the most beautiful, inside and out. The large park-like grounds, the extremely intricate facade stonework and reliefs, the restored interiors, the legislative chambers, the soaring atriums and the beautiful dome make this a very special building well worth visiting. Free tours are given, but you are free to wander on your own.
