This capitol was built in the 1930s. The tour guide here is very good, loves history and can answer all of your questions. Visiting Capitol Buildings is a great way to learn about a state. We heard all about Delaware history, which is fascinating, and...More

The Hall has been fully reconstructed over the past few decades, so you're not really looking at the original anymore. But it has been brought back true to its historic roots and, even more importantly, is brought back to life by the wonderful tour offered...More

The Delaware Legislative Hall is not one of the fanciest state capitols you might visit, but the docent gives a great tour and really gives you a good background on the history of Delaware in Revolutionary War times. A visit certainly makes you feel that...More

Small state, small building....but so much history! Our tour guide, Rachel Rohm, was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Caesar Rodney, described as the "Paul Revere" of Delaware.

Take the tour to get a better appreciation of Dover history. It does not take long and there is a lot to be shared.
