Admire the architecture and artwork at Nebraska State Capitol. Both the inside and the outside of the 120 m (400 ft) capitol are adorned with symbolic friezes, mosaics, and murals that depict both the world and the Nebraskan heritage. The tower provides excellent views of Lincoln and is capped by a reflective, golden dome that features a 5.8 m (19 ft) sculpture of the Sower. The building offers many amenities, including a cafeteria, gift shop with Nebraska-related books and memorabilia, restrooms, and a private room for mothers with children. Free guided tours of the capitol are readily available.

  • The building is unique and designed by a well known architect - if you walk outside you will see many carvings and statues as well as inspirational phrases. The interior has a lovely mosaic floor...

  • Missed the guided tour, but it wasn't really never to appreciate the architecture. Beautiful view from the observation deck.we even found out house. Will definitely be going again this summer
  • Very neat capital building. We didn't do the tour of inside, just walked around the outside and enjoyed the building and the well maintained grounds.
