Beautiful mosaic ceilings and floors, paintings and sculptures inside the 400-foot high capitol building are as impressive as its marble, bronze and gold leaf exterior and white tower topped by a bronze statue. Free guided tours are available.

This building is steeped in history. Chance to visit the nation's only unicameral legislative body. The second chamber no longer used also open to public display. Go on one of the guided tours.

The inside and outside of the capital is really a work of art. It has been recently renovated. The views from the top floors are breathtaking. You will not leave without learning a lot of Nebraska history.

Visiting the State Capitol is worth your time when in Lincoln, NE. The building itself is spectacular and it is free. Using the stroller was a bit of an obstacle because we wanted to experience the nooks and crannies.
