Beautiful building and so much history. It's really neat to be able to go into the Senate and House chambers (if not in session). If your brave, you can even go up to the top (lots of stairs) but kids love it.

Entrance for visitors is at the lower north side. Fascinating history, cool rotunda architecture and murals. This capital building was recently redone. Free to enter and tour.

The House chamber is lovely. The Senate chamber is breathtaking. The structure and history are fascinating. Would have loved to taken dome tour, but with 8 hours of driving ahead, too many steps.

One of the most beautiful state capitols in the nation. Renovated around 10 years ago and they did a wonderful job. From the middle of the first floor of the rotunda look up to the top of the dome. Amazing!

It had been YEARS since I made a trip to the capitol, and so glad I came back! I loved seeing all of the wonderful details including the painted ceiling, ornate stairwells, marble etc. A must visit for any Kansas-citian!
