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.

I have visited the capital many times with family on field trips. It is always fun to go up to the observatory. A great place to take your family or if you want to learn more about the Nebraska unicameral.

I was surprised how beautiful the inside was when we saw the outside. The tour guide knew about all the artwork in the building and about the construction of the building itself. The tour was impressive.
