We toured this during a civil war encampment by it. Inside looks fantastic, very good architecture inside. The outside doesn't look any good compared to inside. Lincoln was here twice I believe. One for his campaign and other for funeral.

If you want to get in to see the Senate and House chambers, it seems like you'd have to take the tour. Quite a lovely building, worth seeing.

Very interesting tour and lots of things to see that you wouldn't get to see on your own. A definite must for a trip to Columbus.

I wasn't blown away by the exterior of the building, but the inside is amazing. Beautiful lower level renovation, with fun valued ceiling and small museum. Upstairs, the rotunda steals the show, but the whole building is beautiful. Take tour if you want to see...More

The outside area is full of statures and garden areas that are well worth viewing. The inside has a wonderful guide during the week who will take you to the senate and house areas and discuss the history of the statehouse and the capitol. Wonderful...More
