About Capitol Building, Salt Lake City

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, Salt Lake City Reviews - Write a Review

  • Well worth the visit and the several war memorials to to east (down into a valley) also a great place to 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.

  • Nice, well kept building. Important piece of history. Leave at least 2 hrs as there's a lot to see and learn.

  • Though this is the brain of Utah's ever burgeoning economy and political system, the temple you'll find down the road is its heart and soul. When the building was nearly burned down by the British in the war of 1812 many thought it would never return to its full glory.

  • Went for a public hearing on homeless center locations and funding, 700 attendees sceduled in room with seating for 96 in the gallery. This is a great place to come if you want to feel marginalized and disenfranchised. Good place to learn that taxation is theft. All the grandiose architecture taken largely without the consent of "governed."
