One of the most popular destinations in Indianapolis, the Indiana State Capitol is an architectural treasure and the center of Indiana’s civic life. All three branches of the state government work out of this beautiful 19th century Neo-Classical building, which was completed in 1888 and constructed from Indian limestone and white oak. The building’s beautiful marble columns and a stunning stained-glass rotunda have made the Indiana State Capitol one of the country’s most impressive statehouses.
Visitors looking to explore the Indiana State Capitol building can take advantage of the two free guided tours offered on-site. There is a 15-minute, self-guided Welcome Tour for those short on time, as well as a 30-45-minute Statehouse Tour that includes a guide and allows participants to enter available offices and chambers while learning about the history and architecture of the building.
Tours are generally available Monday – Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM (excluding holidays)
Saturday tours are also offered at 10:15 AM, 11 AM, 12 PM, and 1 PM (excluding some holiday weekends)
Please note that the Welcome Tours are not available on weekends.
