Owner description: If it's in Texas, it must be bigger and better. That is the motto that architects followed with the Capitol Building in Austin. At one time, it was the tallest capitol building in the nation. Others might be taller now, but this is still a beautiful building that shows off many of the natural resources which are so prevalent in Texas, such as limestone and the landscapes.

If visiting Capitol buildings is your cup of tea, this one is not to be missed. In typical Texas fashion, the Texas Capitol rotunda is the tallest in the land (including the US Capitol building), and the facility and grounds are beautifully maintained. There's a large, newer annex, where much of the committee work is done. Texans are very proud of their history, and the Capitol in Austin is a great place to spend a little time learning about it.

A must see in Austin. The Capitol is kept in perfect condition and features some of the most important works of art in Texas. The Architecture and engineering leaves nothing to be desired, and it's free to visit. Try to take one of the free, guided tours if available.

Took a stroll through the Capitol grounds. Great place to walk on a warm day and take in some history.

Great visit for family and friends. Lots to see inside the capitol. Go into the chambers and don't miss the Governor's office.
