  • Excellent tour and guide! We loved every bit of this impromptu educational excursion and would recommend to anyone looking for something to do in the area. Nice little gift shop as well.

  • This is a beautiful state capitol building and grounds with an interesting history! Paul gave a wonderful tour! The 12 minute film was a well-done introduction before at the beginning of the tour...
