April 2nd
Capitol Tour
2:00 PM | Iowa State Capitol 1007 E Grand Ave
Des Moines, IA 50319 United States

For more than 100 years, the golden dome of the Iowa State Capitol has been a symbol of Iowa government and politics. The 23-karat gold-covered dome rises 275 feet above the Capitol ground. The gold leaf covering the dome is so thin that 250,000 sheets pressed together would measure only one inch thick. The inside of the building is even more impressive, with 109 rooms, 29 different types of marble, and 24 decorative fireplaces.
Join us on Tuesday, April 2nd for a 90-minute walking tour of the Iowa State Capitol, including the dome. The tour starts promptly at 2 PM, so please arrive early to allow time for parking and security. Wear comfy shoes.
All visitors to the Capitol must enter through the security checkpoints on the ground floor. Continue to the center rotunda on the ground floor, and we will meet at the tour desk in the northwest corner.
Tour officials recommend using the parking structure at the corner of East Grand Ave. and Pennsylvania Ave.
