An interesting view of what the Capitol was like over time. The volunteers at the desk are very informative. Can make it thru the building in about 1 hour.

I've visited a lot of State Capitols in the USA but was slightly disappointed with this one as it's not as grand as many others. Not much at all in Tallahassee so isn't a must visit place.
