West Virginia State Capitol
Its dome is modeled after the U.S. Capitol dome, though it’s actually five feet taller, and is gilded in 23½ carat gold. Guided tours are available at no cost. Don’t miss the state Supreme Court as Gilbert modeled the U.S. Supreme Court after his design here. Outside, the park-like grounds invite visitors to walk, picnic and play, and take part in a popular pastime - geocaching.
Tours of the state Capitol building are given Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every half hour. Closed for lunch from noon to 1 p.m.. On Saturdays tours are given from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the hour. No guided tours are available on Sundays.
