    Gorgeous architecture! We went on a Sunday. Tour guide Matt was extremely knowledgeable AND he even had all answers to the elder generations questions, which were much more advanced. I will be back!

    Open on weekends until 5pm. Check out the broadway type lights in the Texas House and Senate and the ornate door hinges. Everything is bigger... And brighter in Texas!

    I love this building, especially the star on the top. From far you can't see "Texas" word, but if you see it closely you can read "Texas" word around the star. Must visit place in Austin!

    There are a lot of interesting things to see here! I recommend the self-guided tour as you'll see a little more that way. If you want some history though, listen in on a tour guide.

    The rotunda is stunning. I basically was able to just walk in after going through really quick security. The whole place was welcoming and beautiful!

    Morbid fact: The painter of the star inside the dome fell when his seat broke while painting. He shattered the floor, which was, at the time, made of the glass tiles that you now see in the library.

    The Texas State Capitol sports a sunset-red granite dome topped by the Goddess of Liberty. This icon, finished in 1888, towers even higher than Washington DC's Capitol. Watch this video for more info. Leggi tutto

    When the Capitol building was constructed, they were competing with the US Capitol in size. The floor under the dome marks who has owned Texas. Get a tour and walk around with your camera!

    If you're on a bike, you can ride through the grounds for a nice view and moment away from the traffic. It's only closed off when the legislature is in session.

    If you haven't done it, you MUST stand in the center of the rotunda, look up, and speak softly. It is the most awesome your voice will ever sound! You don't need to speak loudly.

    It's where the politicos are shaking in Texas, well, at least for 90 days every other year. And the dome is 6 ft higher than the U.S. Capitol!

    The largest state capitol building in the United States, the Texas Capitol was constructed from 1882-1888. It is built of limestone and pink granite. The granite came from nearby Marble Falls.

    We like the Capitol grounds, beautiful place and the kids love running and rolling on the grass at any time of the year. The Christmas Caroling event is a nice one for the entire family.
