I moved to Saint Paul two years ago and I have yet to see this building not shrouded in scaffolding. I am sure it will look great one all the work is done.

This building is made of a beautiful and unusual marble. It is currently covered in scaffolding but the parts that are visible are gorgeous. The entire area is also worth walking through as there are many monuments that basically lead to the cathedral which is...More

I work blocks away from the capital and teach English to immigrants and refugees. This building has been regoing renovations for years. We have gone there twice, as the students are curious about it, and have been disappointed, only able to see very little of...More

Walked around the building last week. You can visit the offices, but the dome is under construction. The offices are small but the staff friendly. I really came at the wrong time of year.

We turned up today 13 August and the site was closed for Reno. All some closed off so give give it a miss for a while or ring and check before you turn up.

We took the light rail out to this stop. We expected it to be beautiful, & I'm sure it is, but at present it's under wraps having a large amount of renovation. The gardens & sculptures in front of Capitol are beautiful.

Had this facility on our to-do list when visiting St Paul but had not realized the building and grounds were closed for renovation. The dome was shrouded by scaffolding and the grounds were all torn up. Had been looking forward to seeing the facility.

It was very pretty, but when we went ( July 2016) the top was under remodeling or cleaning so that you couldn't see the top the building. It is also a short 12-14 minutes walk to the cathedral of St. Paul!

This is a great Capitol. I've been there many times and each time I find something new to explore. They are renovating it right now so you can't see all the building from the outside. Check before you go.

My husband is a big fan of visiting stat Capitols, but we seem to have a knack for being there when they are closed for renovations. But the grounds of the Minnesota Capitol made up for it. With memorials to all branches of service, civil...More

Hi ---Initially the state capital was going to be in Stillwater. I believe St. Paul was picked because it was on the Mississippi River and there was lots of travel there. Otherwise --- check the state capital site and it... More
