“The heart of Connecticut govenment”

The Capitol was opened in 1878 and stands in the picturesque setting of Bushnell Park. (Construction 1872 - 1879) Designed by Richard M. Upjohn, a cathedral architect, this High Victorian Gothic style statehouse was designated a Registered National Historic Landmark in 1971 and underwent a restoration between 1979 and 1989. The exterior marble from East Canaan, Connecticut and granite from Westerly, Rhode island is accented by a gold leaf dome. The interior floors of the Capitol are inlaid with white marble and red slate from Connecticut and colored marble from Italy. Capitol Information and Tours at the Connecticut State Capitol is operated by the League of Women Voters of Connecticut Education Fund and sponsored by the Joint Committee on Legislative Management, Connecticut General Assembly. General tourist information centers are located outside room 101 in the State Capitol and on the first floor, west entrance in the Legislative Office Building. Self-guided tour booklets about the State Capitol, Capitol statuary and the Legislative Office Building are available at these locations and may be used during regular business hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
