We really enjoyed the tour of this states capitol. So many great stories and wonderful history. The architecture was amazing. Our tour guide was great. Fun to see the three branches of government and where they convene!

This is a great structure, especially at night when it's beautifully lighted. Amazing, white capitol building on a hill.

This is a fun place to visit with the family. There are free tours that take you around the Capital and tell you more about the History of the building. The art pieces and architecture are beautiful. One of our favorite places in MN.

After extensive renovations make this building very impressive! From removing the years worth of smoke accumulated over the years reveals wonderful mosaics on the walls and ceilings. The dome is super impressive. Must see!

We took the tour and learned lots of fun facts. The building has just been renovated and it is beautiful. We couldn't go up to the golden horses because that part is not open until August 2017

This building has been mostly restored since our last visit over 10 years ago. Coming up on it provides an understanding of just how much work went into making this one of the most beautiful state capitols in the USA.
