We visited this Capitol this week and had a very informative guide. There were 4 of us in the tour group so we had a great chance to ask questions. The Capitol has been Restored back to its original condition and they have done a wonderful job. It is one of the most beautiful Capitols we have visited.7-20-08

Just got back from a great visit to Lansing. The tour made the trip even better. What an amazing restoration project in the 1990s. Don’t miss looking at all the details. This makes #39 and it is one of the top 10!
