This would have been a better visit if the Capitol building wasn't under renovations. Renovations just began and will last until December 2020. Missouri's Capitol grounds have become a major construction zone, affecting much of the Capitol's exterior stone work as well as around the...More

The Missouri state capitol has great art and architecture. It is a must visit for all those in the state and those visiting. Make sure to get the guided tour and to see the small Museum off to the side.

Loved seeing the busts of famous people from Missouri in the rotunda area. House Chamber much more impressive than the Senate Chamber. Located along the river so some amazing views from some of the offices.

Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes if you plan to tour and see all there is to see. Recommend you plan to take at least 3 hours to learn about the rich history and to see all of the art work.
