As a CTA, I thought this experience was great. I enjoyed the architecture in the building and also the information that was stated. This is a free event if you have never been you should check it out.

“Amazing building”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

The tour guides at the Michigan Capitol are knowledgeable and entertaining. They can tell you minute facts about this historic building that was constructed in 1872 and nearly torn down in the 1960s to build a new one. I enter the capitol building every single day as part of my job and love the restoration that was completed in the 1980s to make this a gem of Lansing.

“Christmas Tour during Annual Parade is a MUst!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The tour offered at the Capital is something everyone should do and make sure you strike up a conversation with the volunteer tour guides as they are great for stories about days gone by. You might even hear a few tales of capital skeletons in the closet if you get the right ones!!!
