So much history and so well taken care of. You can take pictures inside and outside of the capital. The staff is friendly and if you need directions to other places they will give you the best way to get there.

My 11-year-old daughter and I visited the Nevada Capitol Building when we were passing through Carson City. We have been to capitol buildings in other states, but the staff here was unusually friendly and welcoming, especially to my daughter. As soon as we walked inside, the security guard greeted us and gave my daughter a pamphlet with scavenger hunt type questions for her to answer as she went through the building. When we walked into the foyer of the governor's office, the secretary greeted us and gave my daughter a souvenir coin "from the governor". The secretary in the Secretary of State's office was also welcoming and gave us hints about the scavenger hunt even though she was very busy trying to get some work done. I enjoyed seeing the history exhibit in the old Senate chambers and the old Supreme Court room (you can sit on the judge's bench and take photos). There is an audio exhibit in the Supreme Court room that tells interesting stories about the most infamous criminal cases to come before the Nevada State Supreme Court. After we finished our tour, the security guard quizzed my daughter about the questions on the scavenger hunt and gave her a lollipop as a reward. We both really enjoyed our visit.

Tranquil grounds to take a walk around on. plus a old historic building to see and tour.The grounds next to the capital are great for walking around as well. You can not take dogs on the capital building land .

The historic Capitol Building in Carson City is Must see. Enjoy the old west in A small town. If you look on the east side of the big trees near the msin enterance you might possibly see the claw marks from the bear that took up a short term residence. Grand trees attract deer, owls, golden eagles, school kids,walkers and government officials. The grounds of the Capitol Campus (Capitol, Supreme Court, Legislture and the State Library and Archives) are all located within one large city block. In the Capitol Building check out the murals along the ceiling depicting the minerials, counties and early commerce of the State. Upstairs visit the free museum. The statue of Sarah Winnemucca is a duplicate of another on Washington DC. The grounds feature several memorials including the Fallen Officers, the Veterans Memorial Wall.

We went walking downtown and came across the state capital building which was very beautiful. The kids enjoyed walking around and running around their big Courtyard which was shaded by trees. My only regret was that we didn't get to stay long and explore some more.
