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.

“Neat Expansion of the capitol”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is our second time visit the capitol. Last time, we didn't have the luxury to have a good tour guide. This time, we have a young man who is really good at explaining the history of the capitol. We also enjoy the capitol expansion at the north side. The design is great. Highly recommend anyone to pay for a visit to the expansion area.

“State Capitol”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Interesting history and magnificent architecture with well-manicured gardens. Guided tours available or just wander around with one of pamphlets. A great point at which to start a walking tour of Austin. Well worth the visit.
