Capitol Tours 

We are now booking field trips for the 24/25 School Year. 

The Capitol is open Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:00. The Visitor Information Desk is open Monday-Friday, 9:00-4:00. Free guided tours are available Monday through Friday, on the hour between 10:00am-3:00pm (June and July only). Free DOME ONLY tours will be available on the half hour, from 9:30am to 2:30pm (June and July only).

Capitol tours are limited to 30 people on a first come, first served basis.  All tours begin at the Visitor Information Desk, north side, first floor. 

Capitol tours take about an hour and include a trip to the dome observation area. The dome is a 99 step climb above the 3rd floor and is accessible by stairs only.  A closed-captioned video tour (near the third floor elevators) is available for visitors who are unable or do not wish to make the climb.  Self-guided tours of the dome are not permitted.

Two entrances are available for Capitol visitors.  You may enter the building on the north side (Colfax and Sherman Avenues), up the stairs, or use the ADA accessible ground level entrance (14th and Sherman Avenues), under the stairs.

Demand for Capitol tours is high – group tour reservations can be made up to one calendar year in advance. Student group tours during the legislative session (January through May) are extremely popular and space is limited. Tour availability is not guaranteed as time slots do fill up quickly.
