Visit the Minnesota State Capitol!

Third Minnesota State Capitol BuildingThe Minnesota State Capitol Building became part of the Minnesota Historical Society's historic sites program in 1969, and in 1972 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As the stewards of Cass Gilbert's architectural vision, the MNHS preserves and interprets the historical significance of the building and its furnishings and artwork. 

The Minnesota State Capitol Building is open seven days a week year-round and it closes for major holidays. Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $5. Free guided tours are available; sign up at the Capitol Information and Tour Center located in Room 126 on the first floor to the right side of the main (south) entrance.
