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!
