This place was very neat. The murals and marble columns are amazing. It was neat to be able to view into the state rooms. Wish we would have had time for the tours

What a beautiful building! The state has just finished a $300 Million renovation and the place looks great. Lots of amazing details in every room. Great paintings, gilded woodwork, marble and granite. Tour guides were knowledgeable and kept the tour moving.
