Nebraska State Capitol

The State Capitol has been a constant in the lives of Nebraskans since it towered o ver Lincoln, fondly thought of as the Capital on the edge of the prairie.

The Capitol is the perfect place to begin your tour of Lincoln 's attractions and learn Nebraska's story. The interior of this must-see jewel tells Nebraska 's history through carvings, mosaics, paintings, sculpture, inscriptions and inlaid wood. Each artistic element contributes to the symbolic concept of this gem, that was voted one of the 10 most beautiful buildings in the world by a group of 100 architects.

Constructed between 1922 and 1932, Nebraskans are proud that it was paid for when it was built at a cost just under $10 million. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in October 1976, it is home to the only non-partisan one-house state legislature in the United States.

Free guided tours leave from the north entrance, on the 2nd floor on the hour, except at noon.
On 15th and K streets
