Beautiful mosaic ceilings and floors, paintings and sculptures inside the 400-foot high capitol building are as impressive as its marble, bronze and gold leaf exterior and white tower topped by a bronze statue. Free guided tours are available.

Loved visiting the state capitol! The tour was very informative. I'd highly recommend participating in one of the tours if you visit.

It cost the government of Nebraska less than one half the cost of Iowa to run their government. A single house or senate would cost taxpayer a lot less to run the government. The U.S government should have single senate .

We had a great tour of the Nebraska State Capitiol led by a guide who seemed to take a lot of pride on the building. He did a great job and made it really interesting.

Excellent tours! The 10 years it took to construct The Capitol were definitely time well spent. Awesome architecture.

We walked here from the Sunken Garden and were awestruck. From the view atop the bell tower to the amazing mosaics, this is a place for those who appreciate fine public art. Make sure to see the murals

They are self guided tours so you can take as little or as much time as you wish. We spent close to two hours.
