  • 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!
