Great example of the “skyscraper capitols” in the United States with an interesting Art Deco interior. Unlike other government buildings, most of the interior is wood. Tours are on the hour and are led by very knowledgeable volunteers. Parking is ample and near the State...More

This is a unique capitol. From the front it is not balanced. The tower is to the side of center. The public and important rooms are on the first two floors. There are really great Art Deco accents on the legislative floor. You can go...More
