Looking from afar, Nebraska state capitol building will not attract your eyes at the first sight. But don't let your eyes fool you, this capitol is worth your time to explore, enjoy, and admire. I was impressed with how beautiful and graceful each decoration is inside the building. We visited the building on Saturday and was thinking it would be... More

Beautiful mosaics, paintings, sculptures. Fantastic view of Lincoln from the tower. Also has Peregrine Falcon pair that nest on the tower. You can follow them on the Falcon cam and watch the chicks grow. Don't miss this architectural wonder.

This is a good place to take the family for some interesting free fun. My husband & our two boys, ages 2 & 5 visit a few times throughout the year. We always start on top, for the amazing vista views, then we move our way around the building talking architecture & enjoying the animal scenes present throughout. We always... More

Whether a Nebraska native or a visitor from out of state, there is such beauty in this structure and a fantastic amount of Nebraska history. I am biased perhaps since I live in Lincoln, but I represented the Lincoln Visitor Center for a few years and was always proud to suggest people go see what the State Capitol had to... More

The Nebraska State Capitol is full of very interesting facts and history. Everyone should visit it at least once preferably more than once to get the full effect of the building.

This old building full of marble and granite is a charmer. Go to the top floor and look out at the City of Lincoln. Neat gift shop, too.

Very interesting architecture, mural and painting. Guided tour was good. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Capitol building. Observation was closed due to the weather but the dome and murals surrounding dome were awesome. Very peaceful.

Beautiful capital! It is not under construction which is a nice change from many capital cities! Easy to drive completely around the building. The skies in Nebraska are amazing and so blue which is a beautiful backdrop for the capital tower. Don't miss the Lincoln statue on the side! Read the Wikipedia for details about the symbology of the different... More
