  • 3.26.22 Our 1st visit here and I can't believe we didn't come sooner. My library offered 4 free guests passes and weekend street parking is Free. Other libraries offer 2 adults and 2 kids passes so check yours online. The guided tour lasts about 40 min but after you can walk around on your own too. Great place foe photos and much history if that interests you. This is definitely an adult or family friendly venue.
  • The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. I was amazed at all the history in our state capital I learned in one visit. Every room I was impressed by. It was easy to navigate a wheelchair throughout the building and the bathroom was very clean. See us here with miss liberty.
