This was free and a great outing for our kids. Interactive areas the kids loved and scavenger hunts that were fun. Much more attractive than the new capital for sure. Great history.

Thought they did a good job with the displays and explanations inside the building. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions.

I love history and architecture and this place eeks of it! There's an absolutely fabulous novel told throughout the rooms of this building and I really encourage you to do this on your own...at your own pace, without anyone getting ansy, bored or whiney!! The historian/curator was available to speak with me and I took full advantage of his additional knowledge after spending hours...yes HOURS...going through the place. It is fascinating. I learned so much. If you can allow yourself the freedom of time and not be rushed...you might just find yourself being transported back in time...in fact...through several different eras. Worth it worth it worth it!!!

Impressive capital building now housing a museum. Visit the senate and house chambers and the former governor's offices. They are furnished as they were at the turn of 1900's. I am not from the area but found it a very worthwhile and interesting visit.
