  • Amazing this place. It is indispensable in minneapolis. Extraordinarily extraordinary.

  • The newly restored Minneosota State capitol has undergone a massive restoration project, and is now once again open to the public. 
  • We just saw it on the outside, but we could appreciate its imposing architecture. At night, illuminated, is even more beautiful!

  • Minnesota's historic State Capitol building is a great place for a family tour. Take a look at the art, sneak a peek into the chambers, visit the gold sculpture up on the roof, eat in the Rathskallar dining room. This should be a required school trip for every Minnesota child.
  • It's cool
  • One of Cass Gilbert's greatest works, though under heavy construction right now.
  • Beautiful building.
  • Spent some time there!
