Our tour of this building was about as interesting and colorful as the political history of this state. Our tour guide, a member of the Minnesota Historical Society, did not dwell on the huge marble columns of the building, stenciled ceilings or murals- rather he regaled us with the political intrigues of the state. I must say that it was one of the more fascinating tours of a capital building that we have ever had! I did not get a good outside picture of the building- that was rather difficult to do in one picture as it is a long structure of three buildings. One of the first items our guide wanted to show us was a model of the capitol made of Lego bricks. That display model offers a better conception of the capitol than any picture taken on my camera.
