This is a very different capitol building. It's eclectic in it's interior and exterior architecture. It's built like a european church or castle on the main floor windows, deilings and flooring, but very business like in the senate chamber. The the top floor uses art...More

The Nebraska State Capitol is visible from quite a distance away with its tall, stately tower. We easily found free 2-hour parking in front. Though we wished we had had the time to do the tour, information is available to self-guide the art work and...More

VERY tall building that you can see from most anywhere in Lincoln. Turns out that there's a city ordinance that prevents any other building from being higher or, from obstructing people’s views of the capitol. Gorgeous interior with murals and floors, marbles and paintings…all done...More

You can not miss this attraction literally anywhere in the city. Take the family or go solo and enjoy a great piece of plains history. Free to walk in and perhaps you can catch a free guided tour. Allow at least an hour and take...More

Guided tours are wonderful, but not required. Check out the online information by room if tour times don’t work. Lots of art to see. Outstanding views from the 14th floor. You are allowed out on the observation deck if it’s not too windy. You can...More

Very pretty inside, you can walk around almost everywhere. This is not a 5 star because we were not able to go all the way to the top. After asking why the elevator did not work, someone told us that sometimes because of the weather...More

The history of the Nebraska State Capitol is interesting and worth exploring. The tours are offered set days and times. I did not take the tour. Taking photos of the unique architecture was worth the visit.

Love the capitol. The history and art work are amazing. It is great if you're there during the week and can observe the Unicameral in session.

They are self guided tours so you can take as little or as much time as you wish. We spent close to two hours.
