The outside of the building is boringly modern, but the inside is worth a quick tour. The 1st floor has an interesting Art Deco theme and the top 12th floor offers view of the Capitol campus and surrounding countryside. Be sure to ride the express elevator to the top. The guard on duty was friendly and very helpful in getting us started with a self tour. Free parking is plentiful.

It is part of my bucket list to see all fifty capitols in the United States, take a selfie and so, when I saw this online, I guess I thought it would be different close up. We traveled several hours and well, I was just disappointed. It looked like an office building. The flowers around the flag pole were pretty but it just didn't look like a Capitol Building. On the flip side, I'm glad a made the trip and took a pic and now have seen one of the few capitol buildings without a dome.

Impressive building. Tour guide was well informed and gave a very good tour. Tours are free, and they explain not only the history of the building as well as an explanation of how the legislature works.

Very unique architecture for a capitol building. Make sure and go to the top floor for the view, that's the best part.

We did not go inside, but we did want to take a peek at the exterior of one of the few non-dome state capital buildings.
