As an avid state capitol explorer, this capitol was very different in that it did not have lots of wood in it. Told that Thomas Jefferson copied a building from Paris, thus all the marble. It was very grand and beautiful. They have added an entrance and elevator system that fits into the design so nicely.
From the bottom of the hill on Bank Street the view of the capitol sitting up on that hill is magnificent. The grounds are lovely with several statutes and a huge one with George Washington on his horse. That is a great statute.
They have a movie about Virginia's past which is very interesting and some great statutes inside of Washington and Thomas Jefferson. I was very pleased with my visit to this wonderful capitol.
