The inside of the Capital is gorgeous, make enough time on your visit for exploring and taking photos. Don't forget to look up as the ceilings and light fixtures are lovely as well.

Set up a tour with Roxanne Smith - you'll never find a more personable and knowledgable guide. She will give you all the "behind the scenes" details and knows all of the history behind the Capitol. Artwork ranges from intricate mosaics to windows made from slices of agate; cast bronze details and incredible woodworking. A must-see, for sure!

What an amazing building! Everywhere you look there is stunning architecture and artwork. We just missed the hourly tour with a guide, so looked around by ourselves. All the staff were very friendly and helpful pointing out the "don't miss" places. Great views of Lincoln from the 24th floor balconies! Nebraskans should be proud of this beautiful capitol building.

The Capitol is huge and beautiful. The art work amazing. It was truly a site to see. Take a tour. Don't miss the Supreme Court. The ceiling was amazing.

The architecture is unique. Put this on your site seeing list.
