Capitol Building Tours
Kansas has one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the nation. During a multimillion dollar renovation completed in 2014, all five floors were restored to original historic beauty, and updated with modern amenities. Tours start in the visitor center on the north side of the building. Don’t miss the dome tour, which takes you to the highest spot in Topeka up 296 steps.
