During the multi-year repair and restoration work of the State Capitol building, concluding in 2017, our hands-on education programs are suspended. The 45-minute general tour will continue to be available for school groups on a limited basis and is free with reservations. Please check back for updates.

Students explore the capitol's history, art and architecture. They see the chambers where government decisions are made and, weather permitting, visit the Quadriga (golden horses) on the roof of the capitol.
