This isn't a "stay all day" attraction, but the architecture and design work that went into the State Capitol building is certainly worth absorbing for a couple hours. Beautiful work both inside and out, in stone and in paint.
The more interesting aspects involve the site of Huey Long's assassination, and on the day of our visit, there was a guide who seemed very knowledgeable about the event who gave us a short story of both the official and "unofficial" versions of the story.
The view from the top, though, makes this an experience you shouldn't miss. Being able to walk the entire way around the observation deck on top of the tower gives views that are rare in this part of Louisiana. The elevator ride, particularly the smaller elevator that takes you up the last few floors, might not be the best for someone who's overtly nervous about such things, or claustrophobic.
