State Capitol Building

Step back into the Victorian era with a visit to Michigan's award-winning Capitol Building. Designed by Elijah E. Myers, one of the foremost architects of public buildings during the Gilded Age (1865-1914), construction of the Capitol Building took six years and contains over nine acres of hand-painted surfaces. It was dedicated to the citizens of Michigan in 1879. Guided tours are offered from 9:00am - 4:00pm Monday through Friday. Guide tour times are subject to change daily based on staffing levels, visitors interested in a guided tour should call ahead to verify guided tour times.
