    Make the climb to the top, it's amazing! There is a guided tour that takes you above the inner dome, & outside to a 360 degree view from the top of the dome. It was hot up there, no A/C, not for anyone who has a fear of heights, but we'll worth the climb

    I've been to many state capitols and Topeka's is at the top of the best list. Yours of the dome are daily and worth the visit. I was surprised to be able to actually go outside the dome and view the city from up there. Worth a trip to see it and all for free.

    If you have never been to Topeka you have to visit. The capitol building is extraordinary. Except for a couple of mosquitoes the size of hummingbird my visit was perfect.

    Great place to take kids... you get to awe them with the view inside the dome, and throw in some history along the way. We went on one of the free hourly tours (you have to sign up in advance), and loved it. Easy in-and-out underground parking, too.
