The capitol building is open for visitors. I took my children, 4 & 8, into the capitol on a whim one day with a couple of hours to burn. We walked right in, went through the metal detectors (the security guard was very friendly) and had free reign to explore the historic building. It was a good opportunity to teach the kids a little history/civics lesson. We looked at all of the statues and monuments around the outside of the building and the kids really enjoyed it even more than I thought they would. The size of the building and the beautiful architecture was very impressive to their little eyes.
