According to records and their web site, it was built and furnished at the cost of $13 million dollars and was designed in the American renaissance style. This is very evident if you have ever visited the building and taken a tour. Just a warning, there are a lot of steps to climb so if you have any walking problems, this tour is not for you.
If you are planning a trip down to the Pennsylvania State Museum or other downtown attractions, the capitol building is within walking distance of the museum. Parking is hard to come by, especially during the busy weekdays and often times we have to do paid parking, blocks away and walk.
If you visit the PA Capitol Building web site, you can take a virtual tour which is pretty cool for those who can't do a real tour of this historic building. Plus, you can learn all about the history on how this building became to be. Head on over so you can learn more. Enjoy your trip!
