Idaho State Capitol - Review
The capitol building although being a government property, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Idaho, thanks to its unique architecture and elegant, almost ethereal look. Situated in the centre of Boise, the beautiful building is doused in all white with its milk like sandstone walls and elegantly carved pillars. Though the entrance to the functional rooms are closed for visitors (except for those with permission), the premises endowed with numerous statues and a nice long park area is accessible for everyone to just sit for a while, discuss the politics and other interesting happenings of the world or just have a quiet nice time admiring the surrounding.

Idaho State Capitol, Boise Reviews
What a beautiful building. When we travel to new States, we like to stop at the Capitol Buildings. this one is absolutely gorgeous. You walk in and it's all white marble. Gorgeous White marble. There isn't a whole lot to see. On the garden view floor, there's a small area with some history and a little gift shop. on the 4th or 5th floor there's a couple of statues and you can look down in the center. there's meter parking all around. You probably won't spend more than an hour inside. There's no real Direction of where to go. There's no help desk or anything like that. Definitely worth a pop in just to look at the beautiful marble, if nothing else.
Huge building that represents the importance of it. I didn't go inside, but from the outside it looked beautiful. You can take a picture in front of the bill located in front of the main entrance.
What a beautiful piece of Idaho history. As an Idaho native, I was great visiting for the first time.
Interest, educational and fun place to explore with the family. The building is beautiful and a historic treasure for the people of Idaho. So many exhibits covering our State's history and a neat experience to be able to explore.
Every review is spot on A great place to kill time. To take in some history of the state. To see how the people elected represent. And photo opportunities galore.
