I grew up in Washington State but had. never visited the capitol building. We walked in the door just as a tour was starting. Our guide - a retired state employee was well-spoken, knowledgeable, and knew how to tell a story that would keep us all engaged - not an easy job with the mix of young and old in... 更多
When we were driving through Olympia we stopped by the State Capitol building to take a few pictures and at the entrance a guided tour was starting and we were invited to join. The lady guiding us was excellent and was wealth of information on the building and the political structure of the state. We have visited other state capitol... 更多
On a whim we stopped and did a self tour and found many interesting exhibits. I think it would have been worth going on a guided tour but I was unaware of them being available.
Very beautiful place, worth visiting! Beautiful grounds all over! There is a park called Marathon Park that has a place to park your vehicle for up to two hours free. Then the pathway that circles the Capitol Lake has a pathway leading up to the Capitol building itself. It's a wonderful spiralling trail that climbs in elevation and it has... 更多
Visiting the building is great just walking around. I've been on the tour before and as a teen myself it was a bit boring, but if you walking inside yourself, you can see how nice the building and the small details they added to the walls and ceiling. If you are interested in taking the tour, you can learn great... 更多
The structure is stunning and the details or the decor are amazing. The hour long, free tour with one of the guides is well worth your time. The guides take you into areas that unguided visitors don't have access to. The dome in the Washington State capitol building is the fourth tallest in THE WORLD. The marble walls, floors and... 更多
Gorgeous gem in the heart of the city. Do the free tour, it's fun, even the kids said so (be sure to rub Washington's nose)! Walk the grounds, enjoy the sun! Sculptures, memorials and a fountain. Well-worth the trip.
I took my granddaughter to visit the Capitol for her first time. She was excited about meeting Senators, seeing their offices, learning about the WA Seal & viewing the legislative chamber. She especially enjoyed eating lunch in the Capitol lunch room!
I went there with my class and met some cool people and saw cool things. They have 5 different kinds of marble and I got to meet a page! It was so cool and I recommend you go!
I took an afternoon walk on the grounds of the Washington State Capitol on a Sunday in February. It was surprisingly warm and sunny for the season, so that made everything more pleasant. The architecture of the buildings on the site is interesting and beautiful, and the high ground offers some fantastic views of the mountains and inlet to the... 更多
