5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The building and fixtures of the first state capitol building causes one to pause and reflect about what life must have been like on the Missouri frontier.

“Such history!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

What a gem of history in this building. We chose to do a self-tour and "peek" in the windows as we were there between guided tours. We plan to do a guided tour as well next time. The building is like stepping back in time and being a part of history. There is a nice display of early Missouri history in the visitor's building as well.

“Historical displays in beautiful old capital”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

It is an impressive place to see. Missouri has one of the most impressive state capitals. The Murals are something to see. Then they have put together some nice displays on the history and geology of the state.

“A Piece of History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The capitol is small but has the elegance of early America. If you are on Main Street, this is one place to see. You step back in history with this visit. A learning experience for both adults and children.
