Tour Information

Capitol Tours 

The Capitol is open Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:00.  Daily tours are available Monday-Friday at 10:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm.  Capitol tours are limited to 15 people, first come first serve.  

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.  Self-guided tours of the dome are not permitted.

MASKS AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING ARE REQUIRED WHILE ON TOUR.  SCHEDULED TOURS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE OR CANCELLATION IN CONSIDERATION OF HEALTH AND SAFETY CONCERNS.

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.
