We have visited this at least twice when family members are in town. It is a very historic structure, and the tours are always well done. There is a small gift shop and a relatively new addition (now the main entrance).
There is a lovely walk through the grounds of the Capitol. It is worth walking to view the statues, and the grounds, and the lovely architecture of the building itself.
Parking can be a trick, even with metered parking lots downtown. This sits in the middle of a 240-year-old state capitol, after all.
It was a beautiful park like setting with wonderful statues. We walked around the entire area and got a look at the home of the govener. Was very impressed.
My wife and I appreciated the most informative tour led by a thoroughly knowlegable and entertaining docent. We saw the refurbished room and features and learned about the historical background of this capitol building in Richmond.
This is a fun place to take out of towners or any history buff. If time isn't on your side, don't hesitate to do your own tour, lots to look at and they are usually gracious if you want to listen in on a tour....More
