Plan in advance. The tour is of the first floor and shows many historic furnishings. This is definitely an important part of the Capitol and the history of Missouri. The outside has many interesting features and groomed landscaped grounds.

Plan in advance and make reservations if going on a school day. The tour includes the first floor of the governor's mansion and is very informative. Children might not enjoy it as much as adults, but it is interesting.

Nice place to have to live if you are lucky enough to be elected governor The mansion is well planned and is a treasure. The portraits of the first ladies are somewhat gaudy me but do show the different periods

Interesting short tour. Women giving tours dressed in 1800s period clothing. Knowledgeable guides. Tour only covered main floor.
