  • This is an attractive building, filled with legislative offices and chambers. You can view the chambers, but a quick visit is all that is necessary.  more »

  • cool place to walk around if visiting. not sure if there is a tour or not.
  • Located on a hill above downtown Nashville, the Tennessee State Capitol is one of the smaller state capitol buildings. Still, its very beautiful both inside and out. Also, make sure to visit the tomb of President James K. Polk on the grounds outside.
  • It's a historic building. If you have never seen State Government in action you need to go watch the Government in action.
  • Beautiful historic building. On a funny note I had no idea 'Davey' Crockett was a politician.
  • There's so much more to see than just the state Capitol Building. The grounds surrounding the building have statues of former Presidents on display, there's the Tomb of James K Polk, and a Living Memorial of 6 trees in memory of the six million Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust.
