The newly restored Minneosota State capitol has undergone a massive restoration project, and is now once again open to the public.

We are on our quest to visit every state capitol and were disappointed this one was shrouded in scaffolding and canvas with the grounds all fenced off and under extensive renovation. Our pictures will reflect a building under construction. Beautiful, grounds on a sunny, clear day. Difficult to stop since parking seems limited and roads around the area are under... More

Many beautiful surprises have been found by the meticulous craft persons who are doing the work. It will be so exciting to see this incredible building returned to it's... More

I was so excited about the visit to the State Capitol (on my bucket list to visit every US capitol), but very disappointed that the building was completely closed and fenced off. Could not even walk on the grounds. Next time.

I moved to Saint Paul two years ago and I have yet to see this building not shrouded in scaffolding. I am sure it will look great one all the work is done.

This building is made of a beautiful and unusual marble. It is currently covered in scaffolding but the parts that are visible are gorgeous. The entire area is also worth walking through as there are many monuments that basically lead to the cathedral which is a must see.

I work blocks away from the capital and teach English to immigrants and refugees. This building has been regoing renovations for years. We have gone there twice, as the students are curious about it, and have been disappointed, only able to see very little of the building. Until the work has been done, I do not recommend going there.

Walked around the building last week. You can visit the offices, but the dome is under construction. The offices are small but the staff friendly. I really came at the wrong time of year.

We took the light rail out to this stop. We expected it to be beautiful, & I'm sure it is, but at present it's under wraps having a large amount of renovation. The gardens & sculptures in front of Capitol are beautiful.
