Capitol Tours 
The Capitol is open Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:00.  Free guided tours are available Monday-Friday at 10:00am and 11:00am.  Guided trips to the dome only are available at 1:00pm and 2:00pm.   (When staff is available, we will offer the full hour-long guided tours at 1:00pm and 2:00pm.)
Capitol tours are limited to 20 people on a first come, first served basis.  All tours begin at the Visitor Information Desk, north side, first floor. 
Capitol tours at 10am and 11am take about an hour and include a trip to the dome observation area; dome only tours take approximately 15-20 minutes.  The dome is a 99 step climb above the 3rd floor and is accessible by stairs only.  A closed-captioned video tour (near the third floor elevators) is available for visitors who are unable or do not wish to make the climb.
Self-guided tours of the dome are not permitted..

MASKS ARE OPTIONAL AT THE CAPITOL AND WHILE ON TOUR. SCHEDULED TOURS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE OR CANCELLATION IN CONSIDERATION OF HEALTH AND SAFETY CONCERNS.

Two entrances are available for Capitol visitors.  You may enter the building on the north side (Colfax and Sherman Avenues), up the stairs, or use the ADA accessible ground level entrance (14th and Sherman Avenues), under the stairs.

All dates are subject to availability. If we are unable to schedule a tour for you, you are welcome to self-guide throughout the building but note that you will not be able to visit the dome on a self-guided tour.
