I like to visit state capitols anytime I am in the area. Nevada's is pretty small and not much history about the state within it. It is a great building and the grounds are worth a stroll around.

One of the smaller and simpler state capitols I have visited so far. Beautifully renovated inside, but doesn't have much character since the renovation. The House & Senate chambers are in the building next door. Can see the original Supreme Court in the capitol. Security...More

Several interesting things to see inside. One room had a side desk where you could choose and then listen to narrated stories about important legal decisions made in Nevada in the past. Only voice, video would have made it better. The staircase railing was impressive....More

Nevada's Capitol Building complex is as modest and charmingly purposeful as Las Vegas is flashy and profligate. We were welcomed at several offices (including the Governor's!) along our self-guided tour. We recommend, especially if you have young children along with you.
