Utah State Capitol Tours

The State Capitol has been one of Utah’s most prominent landmarks for more than a century. The Neoclassical revival, Corinthian-style building was designed by local architect Richard K. A. Kletting and was built between 1912 and 1916. The building, located on Capitol Hill overlooking downtown Salt Lake City, contains two active legislative chambers, a ceremonial Supreme Court chamber and the working offices of top state officials.

The Capitol, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, is set on over 40 acres (161,874 square meters), with beautifully maintained and sculpted lawns, trees and gardens featuring flora native to Utah.  The facility also has a wide variety of original artwork, treasured artifacts and historical monuments on display. A memorial commemorating the 388 Utah natives who died in the Vietnam War is located on the west grounds, while to the east a monument stands in honor of the Mormon Batallion — a group of 500 Mormons who marched from Iowa to Mexico to fight in the 1846 Mexican-American War.

Guided tours of the Capitol are given hourly from 9am - 4pm on weekdays. The building itself is open Monday to Friday from 8am - 8pm; Saturday to Sunday from 8am - 5pm.
