Attraction details
Owner description: The majestic Roman Renaissance-style State Capitol has the only granite dome in the U.S. and inside has over 40 different types of stone from around the world as well as murals and handmade furniture. The observation deck, open in the summer, offers views of the city and surrounding lakes. Capitol Square plays host to state events throughout the year including Farmers Markets and Folk Festivals.

Wisconsin has one of the most beautiful state capitols, from the stunning mosaic in wthe dome to the beautiful stone materials in the floors and ceilings. Perched high in the middle of the city’s isthmus, it is a must see while in Madison.

You have to go inside to appreciate this architectural treasure. Take time to ready the history and tour several floors.

If you get lost in Madison - look for the top of the Capital - it will guide you anywhere. CLEAN - cool location in the heart of Madison! Walk around it & check out some of the great places to eat & drink in the area!

Went there on Sunday and arrived just before one of the free tours started: Got a vivid explanation of many details about the history of this beautiful place and got to see the rooms that are not accessible otherwise: Governors conference room, senate, supreme court and assembly hall. Highly recommended!

The architecture, the ornamental designs, the flooring... all completely and utterly amazing. So much detail has gone into this building inside and out. I could have done the public tour but opted to explore on my own. Truly an impressive building inside and out. I wish the observation area had been open but still just amazing.
