The architecture is so beautiful. The rotunda area is open and there are balconies overlooking on each floor. Lots of history and art. There is a chapel on 4th floor.

I was glad to walk inside the rotunda of the capitol building to view its architecture and read about its history. I especially love the Civil War memorials/history that are on the grounds.

A beautiful building worth your time. Do take a guided tour to learn as much as possible. Special interest displays are in the rotunda.

Not a normal stop for us, but well worth it. The Intern that took us to all the sites in the capitol great. We learned a lot about the State Government. The Capitol Site is beautiful. Glad we decided to look around.

It is a beautiful Capitol Building with lots of history. You just walk in and stroll around someone is always asking if they can be of help.

Group tours need to be arranged in advance, depending upon the size of the group--of course. I suggest you go to the Statehouse website and find contact info about tours. When we visited in March, we "tagged along" with a... More
