Set over 40 acres and overlooking the majestic Salt Lake City, the Capitol building is both regal and an architecturally beautiful. Sculpted lawns and manicured bushes flank the building, and the view of the surroundings is simply jaw dropping. Walking on the grounds instils a feeling of awe and patriotism as you pass the Vietnam memorial and the Mormon monument that have been erected in the memory of brave soldiers.
The Capitol building itself was built in 1916 using granite and other indigenous stones found in the nearby canyons. The interiors are tastefully done, with marble columns and a grand 165-feet rotunda. Guided tours are available for visitors or you can even choose to explore this stately building by yourself.

Capitol Building Reviews & Ratings
Many people under estimate Salt Lake City, in general. Whether you are driving through, or flying in, give yourself an opportunity to see the capital and the wonderful surroundings of Salt Lake City. Especially in spring or winter, you won’t be disappointed.
Love the capitol building. Always stops there whenever I'm there.
Great building, good little exhibition for free :)
Lovely building! Free hourly tours, but I managed to keep myself entertained on my selfguided tour. I learned quite a few things about Utah just in my brief time there.
Always impress every time I come here
