Next to impossible to meet any of our elected officials. Old classy building built 1868-1888 Go through the underground tunnel to Stratton building for a simple salad bar and hot bar cafeteria. Nobody knew what the huge mural with the Indians was about about. The state police were very quick and efficient getting the crowds of people through the metal... 更多
The kids love this trip, every group I have ever brought has been fascinated. The tour guide we have seen each time has been the best, he engaged the kids and made history come alive.
We really enjoyed the tour of the capital. From the moment we walked into the building everyone was friendly and informational. The guards even suggested were to go for lunch. What great representation of Springfield. Our tour guide Dorthea was kind and knowledgable. Dorthea made this tour awesome.We especially like the hall of portraits.

The magnificent marble throughout, the statues, artwork, and staircases are unbelievable. If we had more time, we could have spent hours photographing and examining the details in the walls and ceiling. We... 更多
We did not stay for a tour of the State Capitol, but were able to walk around on the entry level. The building is beautiful and we were allowed to take pictures of the dome, the statues and the art work. Worth the stop.
