“Has art gallery on top floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Modern building or Legislature to meet. Art gallery on top floor. Wonderful view of Tallahassee from top. New Capitol is centered right behind old Capitol which makes for a neat photo shot. Old Capitol is mostly a museum, a beautiful historical building & grounds, makes a unique view.

“New to Tallahassee - toured the capitol!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Fun vintage capitol. Hard to believe it's called the "new" capitol - it's quite "That 70's Show" - but fun. Wonder what was up with legislators, governor, and staff when they allowed this design to be built in the early 70's. Very iconic. We now need a newer capitol bldg - something outrageous. Very phallic. Love the dolphin sculptures out front.

“Try to visit when the Florida legislature is in session.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

To really appreciate what happens in the Capitol, try to visit when the Florida legislature is in session. The galleries above the House and Senate chambers offer a vantage point to our government in action.

And make sure you go to the 22nd floor for the panoramic views of Tallahassee.

“Florida State Capitol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Tallahassee is the home of one of the tallest state capitol buildings in the US. There is an observation deck that gives you a full panoramic view of the entire area from 22 floors up and the building sits on one of the tallest hills in the county. You can see the campus of Florida State University and Florida A & M. Tallahassee is built on 7 hills and the view from the new capitol shows the diverse landscape in all it's splendor. Some of the most fascinating sites are the tall church steeples in the area and on a clear day you can see the gulf of Mexico.

“Quick History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed the building. The outside well kept, nice history, and great pictures to be taken. We will be back next time we are in Tallahassee.
