    Get there early for a less crowded tour group (take the tour...the guides' knowledge is awesome ). Take time to enjoy/look around the judicial wing, amazing variety of architecture, painting & rock.

    Beautiful architecture and a great place for history buffs! Right in the centre of the city, and access to UW, lots of shops and places to eat.

    After walking up one of the four staircases, turn around for a breathtaking view of one of the lakes (I personally enjoyed the view down King Street).

    The outside of the building is made of 43 different kinds of stone. The WI Capitol Building is the only Capitol building to be completely covered in granite. Watch this video for more info. Read more

    Could you ask for a more breathtaking capitol? I don't think so! I love the giant double doors on the facade and the picturesque marble staircases.

    Visit on April 15th...there's usually a Tax Day Tea Party rally in front of the Capitol. For once, if you're a conservative and in Madison, you won't feel outnumbered.

    Tell Governor Walker thank you for restoring fiscal sanity in Wisconsin. Closing a 3.6 Billion dollar budget deficit without raising taxes is quite an accomplishment.

    W.D Hoard, Hoard's Dairyman magazine founder, served as governor here (in the third capitol which burned down in 1904) from 1889 to 1891. This capitol was built from 1906 to 1917 for $7.25 million.

    Take some time and walk through the building. Try not to remove the awesome sconces and period wood and stone working. Gorgeous!!!

    Tell Walker and the republicans to quit their attack on everything public - education, employees, property, and trust.

    Sing between noon and one and you might get busted. Or just observe, or practice journalism...same thing.

    If you smell something rancid it means Gov. Walker is in town (which is actually a rarity.)
