Impressive building. Tour guide was well informed and gave a very good tour. Tours are free, and they explain not only the history of the building as well as an explanation of how the legislature works.

Very unique architecture for a capitol building. Make sure and go to the top floor for the view, that's the best part.

Neat State house with a tower. There's a very cool, free museum here that easily makes up for the underwhelming State house. Area wasn't busy. Apparently there's not a lot of traffic through there.

Thankfully didn't have to drive too far to look at this building. Not much to see. Architecturally quite boring.

If you go to the Capitol, be sure to take the tour. If you are really lucky, you will get Darlene to lead your tour! She did an amazing job! We all learned so much in the 30 minute tour. Parking is not a problem...More

I can't answer that. I suggest you try the website. At the least there should be a number to call for information.
