“The only five-domed capitol in the country”
The Iowa State Capitol is located in Iowa's capital city, Des Moines, and houses the Iowa Senate, Iowa House of Representatives, the Office of the Governor, and the Offices of the Attorney General, Auditor, Treasurer, and Secretary of State. Located at East 9th Street and Grand Avenue, the Capitol is set atop a hill and offers a panoramic view of the city's downtown and the West Capitol Terrace. Various monuments and memorials are to its sides and front, including the Soldiers and Sailors' Monument and the Lincoln and Tad statue.
Beautiful architecture worth seeing even from the car. Make sure to drive around the entire building to see all the statues as well.
Really cool building! Worth the stop. Take time to check out all the monuments and memorials of those fought on past wars.
We did not do a tour, but it is still worth a stop to see all of the interesting history visible around the lawns.
Go on a guided tour and you can go all the way up to the whispering gallery in the dome of the capital! The tour was wonderful!
