Capitol Campus


The sprawling Capitol Campus is a great place to learn about Washington State history and government; it's also a great place for a picnic. Start your exploration with a free tour (offered daily between 10 and 3) of the grand Legislative Building, with its 287-foot dome. Designed by New York architects Walter Wilder and Harry White, it consists of more than 173 million pounds of stone, brick, concrete, and steel, and its interior is rich with marble. Continue exploring in the 24-acre Heritage Park, which has more than 120 types of trees, a lake, walking paths, and picnic areas. Other notable sights include the Tivoli Fountain; the Winged Victory Monument; the POW-MIA, Vietnam Veterans, Law Enforcement, and World War II memorials; and the redbrick, Georgian-style Governor's Mansion.
