I was a teacher for a private school, because we were a Christian School we were not permitted to join the tour with the public school kids. This left bad taste in my mouth and other teachers - those kids will never forget being turned away! I personally was able to get a tour later with my spouse, a nice visit, as a lifelong citizen of the state I am educated in the history of the building - a bit more than the tour lead. I was saddened to see that the building is not as well maintained as it should be, the state seems to be able to spend plenty of money RE-BUILDING project housing after the free rent tenants destroy them but never have enough money to fully restore a historic monument of the state that is 5+ times older than any project dwelling in the state. The place could be restored for future citizens to see - all citizens and visitors not just select groups approved by those with personally agendas. I would recommend the tour next door at the capital however we seem to have gone nuts and blocked eveyone until they can go thru security which takes a great deal of time and prevents them from bringing so much as a bottle of water thru the door.
