Pretty cool building. Unfortunately COVID stopped the tour, but managed to get some pictures outside and watched one online to get the experience.

A spectacular huge building with awesome views inside. We visited at 9:30 on a weekday after Labor Day and saw no-one inside except for a street person availing himself of one of the benches. A pamphlet guided us on a self-tour around the interesting sculptures and history of the building. There would have been a guided tour as early as 10 am.

One might think a walk through a Capitol state building, with all the serious affairs transpiring by the minute, would make one feel as small and unimportant as a bug. Yet this building is so light and airy and the free access to daily deliberations of important legislation in the making is actually quite inspiring. Although the curator adjusted her presentation to match the interests of the 6th grade students visiting on a Friday afternoon as I joined at this time being a random visitor, I absolutely enjoyed the tour... and the beauty, exquisite detail, artistry and the engraved idea that the American people is above all representatives and statesmen (the Capitol representing people's voice is visible from any angle and any side of the building). The centennial carpet in the ballroom for sure remembers that many glamorous ceremonies and celebrations, still holding pride in being the first and largest continuous loop woven carpet in this part of the world. The Alaskan marble has certainly gone a long way from formation and extraction to soaking the equally intricate discussions of statesmen through time. The amount of work that went on during construction and consequent maintenance and preservation for generations to come is mind boggling. All the thought put into this stately building is breathtaking and truly inspiring, much like the work of elected statesmen who continue to write the future of this state.

We took our 4 kids, ages 7-13, & had an amazing time! Our guide was great & made the information relevant, engaging & interesting to our kids. They even asked questions that were relevant (we were stunned). Guide did a great job of keeping them present & our 3 boys (ages 9, 11 & 13) now all want to be pages! The 2 oldest said it was the favorite part of our trip to Olympia!
