We were visiting from out of town and visited the Capitol building. We took some family photos in front of the building and also when we descended from the 2nd floor on the grand front steps. The Capitol building was beautiful inside as well. On the bottom floor you can watch a video and there are historical displays and some interactive for kids. We went to each floor and could see the Senate and House chambers. We spent about an hour and the whole family enjoyed it.

The Idaho State Capitol Building is a beautiful replica of the U.S. Capitol in D.C. You can go in and tour the rotunda, house, and senate galleries. I went on a Saturday and it was quiet and peaceful, like a museum. A good reminder that we have 50 of these things in the U.S. no matter what's happening in the nation's capital.

A really nice building of white marble, in a nice easy place to find and park. Very pretty in summer.

This is worth seeing. The exterior is worth a picture or two and the interior and dome interior is also worth a picture or two.
