“Nice State Capitol Building”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We’ve enjoyed two tours of Indiana’s state capitol building, most recently in September. The architecture of the building is classically elegant, and the building has been restored to its original grandeur. The tour provides a little history as well as the opportunity to see the senate, house, and supreme court chambers. The only negative about the Indiana state capitol building is that the city is built so close that it’s difficult to get a good photograph of the exterior.

“Center of our State Government”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

If you like State history and architechure, how could you not love our state capital. It has everything a state capital should have. See if you can find the tunnel when you visit.

Take a few minutes to soak in the beauty and history of this state building. Pick up the brochure and enjoy the details. Pay special attention to the doorknobs!

“Beautiful State House”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

The Indiana State Capitol, built between 1878 and 1888, is well worth visiting when in Indianapolis. It is a beautiful building that is well maintained, and the people who work there are very friendly to visitors walking around with cameras. In addition to housing the House of Representative and Senate, along with other administrative offices, the Capitol is the home of the Indiana Supreme Court. There is also a small chapel in this marvelous building. The stained glass dome in the center of the rotunda is breathtaking. For an enjoyable and informative study in state government, a visit to the Indiana State Capitol is encouraged.
