The Minnesota State Capitol, designed by noted architect Cass Gilbert, is a Renaissance Revival masterpiece of the Beaux Arts School. The classically styled building, which boasts the second largest self-supported marble dome in the world, features 23 different types of stone, including 16 varieties of marble from around the world, and granite and limestone from Minnesota. Spectacular murals and heroic historical paintings created by some of the finest artists of the early 20th century grace the chambers and hallways. While the building's technology has been updated periodically to accommodate the changing needs of state government, many of the original furnishings and lighting fixtures designed by the architect are still in place throughout the building.
