There are quite many wonderful buildings in Saint Paul, especially on Summit Avenue, but as usually, the state capitol building tops them all. Though some of the rooms and areas of the Minnesota State Capitol are under renovation, there are still some tours organized hourly. Specialized guided tours are charged, but you can go on the tours which are free and are conducted every hour.

The most significant aspect of the capitol is definitely the statue group just in front of the dome. The woman and man driving a chariot led by 4 horses is plated with gold and has symbolic significance. It is a beautiful sight and well worth for a visit and pictures.

75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard., St Paul, MN 55155, USA

Free hourly tours.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Sat: 10am-3pm (tour times)
