The free tour of the capitol is interesting and well done. The history of the state is fascinating and engaging and the building itself worth a look. Stop by and check it out.

Beautiful building. A site to see. We missed it lit up at night because we were walking the other direction. Park nearby cool too. Sad to see the homeless nearby.

This is a great place to visit if you like History and Free! The building is gorgeous and is worth visiting just for that. The president gallery is also great.

The tour guide is very knowledgeable. Your tour goes from the main floor to the governor's office and both chambers of the legislature. It ends with a tour of the dome. You are actually near the top of the dome and can even go outside...More
