One great set of destinations to consider as you travel near or far, is visiting State Capitol Buildings in each state!
History, culture, government, and gorgeous architectural elements await your enjoyment!
Many State Capitols also have museums and exhibits that further detail everything from a state’s Native People, to its Geology, Wildlife, and more! You can also find monuments, memorials, statues, and gardens throughout most Capitol Grounds.
Will the State Legislature be in session? Find out!
Explore State Senate Floors, House Chambers, or maybe even meet Senators or Representatives in person!
You could easily spend a morning, afternoon, or entire day exploring!
For an even more up-close-and-personal or hands-on learning experience, be sure to ask about guided tours, behind-the-scenes access, or other educational activities such as Scavenger Hunts or Activity Sheets.
