First time in Tallahassee, self guided tour of the Capitol is highly recommended. There is plenty of history in this building. The state employees we met were amazingly helpful. The building has 22 floors and you have to see the views from the top.

Totally dominates the old Capitol and is basically a monolith with no redeemable features. Did not go inside as it was a Sunday evening and it was closed to the public

We enjoyed visiting the capitol--it was interesting, but a bit modern compared to the old capitol. The view from the 22nd floor was great.We enjoyed the old capitol museum much more because it was rather quaint. People were very friendly in both places.
