Minnesota State Capitol

Designed by Cass Gilbert, the Minnesota State Capitol is considered an architectural masterpiece. Visitors can explore the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers, see the legislature in action, visit the gold-leafed Quadriga on the roof when weather allows, stop in the restored Rathskeller Café and walk the Capitol Mall.
