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.

Everybody should see this. I took the tour at age 16- if you are a history buff - I say skip it and explore on your time so you can see the artifacts with the presence they deserve. Yet, if you are shy a few facts on your history knowledge let the tour Guide "learn you" as much as one can in short time a tour can manage for this! A must see,
The good place to learn the history of the United States especially for foreign tourists
I have never seen a state capital building as lovely, majestic, and well done as Utah's capital building. A must visit for anyone's first time in Salt Lake! Spectacular views off the steps.
Beautiful place to visit and the views of the skyline are a must see.
Great tourist spot. The architecture is worth seeing. There are 4 floors and the visitors center is on the 1st which you may have to walk down to depending on where you enter. They have tours every hour on the hour. Otherwise you can grab a pamphlet for a self guided tour. It's great to walk through and you'll learn some history of Utah.
