A short side trip from Columbia, well worth the visit. Great architecture and attention to detail. Sprawling grounds are full of water fountains. Great views of the Missouri River at the back.

I had little time to visit, but I always make a point of taking pictures of State Capitol buildings when I have the opportunity. I wasn't disappointed.
