“Impressive dome”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Beautiful domed building in heart of St. Paul. On Interstate 94 for easy access. Limited parking available. Museums located on grounds make for interesting school tours.

Learn all about how the MN Capitol was built, where different types of marble came from, why certain stones are inlaid in certain places...It's a fascinating tour.

This was a great visit for me; not so much the family but I love looking at old buildings. I guess I just love architecture.
