Impressive building and beautiful grounds. It is within easy access from I-64 and offers plenty of parking options.

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon during winter break. The building is very pretty and everyone we encountered was very nice. The receptionist was especially helpful, recommending things to see and a place in town to go for lunch. Well worth the drive from Louisville.

The Capitol building is closed on Sunday but you could see the outside of the building. However, do consider coming Mon-Fri 9-4 for an inside tour or Sat 10-2 for a view inside.
