The ceilings are beautiful along with all the stairs. Perfect for a wedding, field trip, or to just educate yourself.

There's never a lot to see in capital buildings, but it's about the scenery. If you have free time in Indianapolis, I recommend you make sure to see this.

Beautiful old building with statues. It was raining, so didn't stay to long to explore further. Worth a stop.

The downtown is easy to maneuver around, we enjoyed walking to many sites downtown Indy. The beauty of this Indiana marble is exquisite. Loved the stairwells and attention to details.

Very nice capitol building - ornate interior. The first portion of the tour is done sitting in rows of chairs in the rotunda listening to the guide. Many school students in our group, so it tended to be more a primer of "how government works"...More

I've seen many state capitals and love how similar, yet how unique each one is. The architecture and craftsmanship is beautiful, most impressive being the stained glass in the rotunda. Wonderful visit.

I have been numerous times and it is a wonder to visit and take a tour of. The art work and history of the place just is amazing. Give yourself time to take one of the tours they offer.

Had a very limited amount of time to visit. Still a beautiful place! Wish we could have toured longer. Worth the visit!

Group tours need to be arranged in advance, depending upon the size of the group--of course. I suggest you go to the Statehouse website and find contact info about tours. When we visited in March, we "tagged along" with a... More
