The Utah Capital looks like a miniature version of the National capital. The dome is very pretty looking up from the inside. This is something that every visit to Salt Lake should see.

Why pass this up while visiting in Salt Lake? Enjoy the grandeur of the building inside and out, the historical murals & information of the area and see where the state government conducts it's business. It's free, and you can take a self-guided tour, or a guided tour by either making a reservation or just ask at the desk as... More

At the top of State Street, the historic Capitol is splendid in celebrating its 100th anniversary. Excellent self-guided tour. Do use the east entrance doors and avoid all the stairs.

It is free to wander around & well worth a visit for the views alone. Quite a few steps, though. Snow had fallen on the mountains so the views were even more stunning!!!

Walked around the exterior trying to figure out how to get in - the west entrance is permanently closed (odd as it is the closest to the Pioneer Museum), the south entrance (both on the first and second floor) was also closed, but finally was successful on the east side. This minor problem aside (other than being cold outside, walking... More

The state capitol was part of the Segway tour. We never went inside but the views were amazing. Next time I will go inside.

We were hiking at Ensign Park and on our way to downtown we stop by and took a walk around the area. It is very pretty at night. We felt safe around the area.

Was very beautiful. I've never seen so much granite in one place. Not a place to be bypassed on your visit to SLC.
