Must see place while in Salt Lake City. You get a great view of Salt Lake Valley, especially in the evening when light are on. It gives feeling of "Star on Ground".

Lots of information about the history of the city and the capitol tasks that have been performed in this building. The location is very beautiful and it is impressive that this building has been built in just 3 years!

Stop by for either the guided tour or just to walk around stopping at the various government chambers. The marble that it took to build this capital is breath taking. Try it but be ready to walk up over 50 steps to the front door. There is a nice gift shop across the street.

Lovely manicured lawns, impressive building. Unfortunately, none of the rooms are open once you get in (on weekends) so the visit is relatively quick. Didn't have any problems finding parking. Plan to be here for an hour or so

Pretty place. It is a quick stop, but well worth the visit. Easiest to park, downhill, across the street, next to the state tourism building. Actually the state tourism building is pretty good.

I love domed buildings and the Capitol looks so majestic perched on the hill . We were in a hurry and didn't go inside . We settled on taking a few photos and walking around the south grounds . It is only a few blocks up the hill from the Temple Square . We parked in the tourist info lot... More

The Capital is kept clean and not very busy during late hours; there were a few people taking pictures here and there. The lion statues guarding the Capital is something we don't have in my capital city of Washington. A ver fun to go and visit with family and your dog.

The State Capitol is a beautiful building with a rich history. We learnt a lot just by walking around the building. Shame we arrived too early in the day for the guided tours. Highly recommended.
