The ceilings are beautiful along with all the stairs. Perfect for a wedding, field trip, or to just educate yourself.

There's never a lot to see in capital buildings, but it's about the scenery. If you have free time in Indianapolis, I recommend you make sure to see this.

Beautiful old building with statues. It was raining, so didn't stay to long to explore further. Worth a stop.

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
