The Florida Capital building has a great 360 degree view from the 22nd floor. You can see out for miles in all directions. The guides are friendly and very knowledgeable. Great place to hold an event.

Because we spend so much time in the Old Capitol Building we only had about 20 minutes, so we took the elevator to the 22nd floor and were astounded by the views! What a pleasant surprise!

We visited the New Capitol Building, Old Capitol/Museum and then the History Museum behind the Supreme Court Building across the street. We loved all of it. The people and even security were very nice and helpful to direct us around. This was our first time...More

Adjacent to the old Capitol building, it is a bit nondescript. But the fun is going up to the top floor. There, you can look out and take photos in all 4 directions. And there is some historical info there too. On the ground floor...More

A sad excuse for a capitol built in the 70's so its no surprise. The view from the 23rd floor is the main redeeming feature.
