I took my grandchildren to our State Capitol building for a tour. We run up on the observation tower and overlooked the city of Bismarck. It's a 360 degree walk around touring area full of windows. You can look over the Missouri River definitely worth...More

From the top floor you can see all of Bismarck - can you see your house or where you are staying? So much to see in and out of the capital. ND Heritage Center is near and fun to explore.

We had a great visit to the capital. The building is a good mix of old and new. It was a lot of fun to watch the democratic process in action.

It was good to get a look over Bismarck from on high, and seeing the upper and lower chambers out of session. There isn't much else to see beyond the old photos, so maybe not a place for a family outing!

The building inside and out is worth seeing , if you enjoy seeing state capitols. Plenty of free parking. Pleased to see that Bobby Vee was included as a VIP citizen.

Interesting. Liked that one could go all the way to the top. Best picture was all the snow angels. Had ice cream at their cafeteria. Nice muesum next door.

Stopped in to explore the grounds and State Capitol. The flowers in the front spell our "North Dakota" and make a nice photo. The grounds are nice to roam around and take photos and the people we encountered were very friendly, smiling and pleasant. We...More
