First time in Tallahassee, self guided tour of the Capitol is highly recommended. There is plenty of history in this building. The state employees we met were amazingly helpful. The building has 22 floors and you have to see the views from the top.

You would enjoy checking out the Tallahassee Capitol building. There is a sweet little chapel on the first floor and on the 22nd floor you have a look out area that is filled with Florida Artist works. When I worked at the Capitol Building, I...More

Totally dominates the old Capitol and is basically a monolith with no redeemable features. Did not go inside as it was a Sunday evening and it was closed to the public

We enjoyed visiting the capitol--it was interesting, but a bit modern compared to the old capitol. The view from the 22nd floor was great.We enjoyed the old capitol museum much more because it was rather quaint. People were very friendly in both places.

This is very unique state Capitol building. It is a 22 story tower - not a traditional dome building. North Dakota also has a tower structure but I am not aware of another state which does. The highlight for the traveler is the observation on...More
