I don't expect an old building coming from the 49th state, but I was disappointed in seeing a normal modern building. Their was no character in the design. If your into architecture an design of buildings this is not worth going to see.

I toured the state building with a group of students and it was the most welcoming experience I've ever had with kids. The building went out of their way to not only give us a tour, but to also meet different representatives in person.

The state capital of Alaska isn't that imposing of a building and it was having a face lift when I visited. However, it is easy to access and has some wonderful historical photos and artwork. The chambers for the state senate aren't that impressive, too new and small. However, the older chamber has the historical flavor you would expect to see. Very friendly helpful people.

We took a chance to see the State Capitol building during our Saturday visit.....surprised by it being open. We were able to either take a free guided tour or walk around on our own. We were able to visit the Chambers of the Legislature and the Hall Of Governors. We got a chance to see the hallway with all oof the history of how Alaska became a State. Very interesting stop, especially if it is raining.
