We were able to go in and walk up several floors. There are tours available but we just wanted to wander around and see the building. Beautiful building.

We went into the State Capitol to see the dome which was worth the visit. The dome itself was beautiful and the decorations around it excellent.

See my photo of the Illinois State Capitol building. I notice the dome is consistent with the dome on the Old State Capitol Building. Downtown Springfield Il is a great open place to stroll around and enjoy the outside park areas.

I'm a stranger here myself, but other than these other informative answers, why not just call the Capitol and ask about making specific arrangements?
