Fun time to visit is after they have set up the yearly Christmas tree. Also make a point to make it up to the top floor to view the entire city of Bismarck.

This Capitol is unusual because it is a high rise with no cupola. The original building burned in 1930. This building was erected in 1934 as is Art Deco in style. It has also been expanded in later years. Our guide was very informative about...More
