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.

The Nebraska State Capitol is one of the prettiest capitol buildings I have visited. You can view this building on your own or join up with a guided tour. I have done both. The guided tour includes much of Nebraska's history and explains all of those beautiful paintings in the dome inside that are hugely impressive....just look up! The long... More

One of the most beautiful State Capitols in the USA and one of my favorite buildings in the world. The mosaics, artwork and details on the 2nd floor alone earn the Nebraska State Capitol its place among the many grand historic buildings in the country. A must-see, and the guided tour is just great.

The State Capitol of Nebraska has dazzling architecture, a sweeping view of the city from the dome, and gorgeous frescoes inside the dome. It is also highly accessible to the citizens of NE, and an excellent place to meet w/ our state legislators.

So much to see! The beautiful murals, inlayed art work, hanging art work, stone work. Ride the antique elevator to the top observation deck and see the entire city as well as surrounding county. Drop in during the state legislature hearing. It is truly a state capital worthy of many visits.

The Nebraska State Capitol Building dating back to the 1920's is unique in the USA, because it is a single spire tower. Also, the state legislature is unique, in that it is the only Unicameral - a single Senate - no House of Representatives. Hourly tours running less than a half hour take you through main floor and direct you... More

Beautiful art deco architecture highlighting the state's history and resources... Especially it's amazing people. My kids loved exploring. We made it an artistic and historical scavenger hunt.

The day after Christmas was a nice day to visit the capital of Nebraska. The impressive mosaics on the walls and ceilings and floors were really nice. The 14th story balcony was closed, but the inside was beautiful.

Lot of things to learn and read. Lot of known and unknown history..People very friendly on helping out with the attraction around and through the capital, helpful on knowledgeable info... From the top floor cars trees and people look completely fake and small. The 13th floor is a total mystery. I enjoyed my visit and will visit again..
