  • I've been to most state capitol buildings. This one disappoints and that's a shame since Indiana is my birth state. The building itself is nice. The rest of it, not so much. One problem is the legislator's parking lot that borders the north side of the building. This should be landscaped grounds. It really looks bad. Indiana legislators can't walk a block? Maybe that explains why the state is one of America's least fit. To the west are two hideous state office buildings that hide the capitol from that side of town. There's a garish sign on top that says "A state that works." Most states showcase their capitol building. Indiana, whether intentional or not, has hidden theirs. What a shame.
  • The tour guide Jim is incredible. He is a great ambassador for Indiana.
  • Beautiful, beautiful place. Nice staff, good fit both outdoor and indoor photos.
  • This was our 41st State Capitol to visit, and was definitely one of our favorites. Beautiful exterior, even more stunning interior. But what made our experience was our tour guide, Jim. If you are going to tour the Indiana State House, make sure to get on a tour with Jim. Jim is almost 200 years old and helped build the Capitol building with his bare hands, often without shoes in temperatures that got to below -100F. He gives tours now in retirement from traveling with the circus as a career bear wrestler. In all seriousness, Jim is so knowledgeable and so enjoys his job, that it makes his tour extremely enjoyable. Be sure to make him tell the story of Colonel Owen when you walk past his bust.
  • Beautiful building with an even more interesting history. Thanks to all who made our tour great!

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
