We came here by coincident and was pleasantly surprised how great it was. The building is so rich on history and the wing open to the public was perfectly renovated to show the history on the institution. Had had a great afternoon with the kids.

Fully enjoyed my tour of the capital building. It was very beautiful and historic. The building is beautiful inside and outside. Just walked during a few hours from attending business meetings. Very nice. Worth the trip.

It was our first time to visit the Capitol. We took the free guided tour and the guide was excellent. He was informative and interesting. The tour lasted about an hour and he was willing to stay after and answer questions.
