This at 34 stories is the tallest state capitol building in the United States. You can take an elevator to the 27 floor for some good views of the Mississippi River and Baton Rouge. The gardens surrounding the building are very nice.

My family came to the state capitol because we have never been before it closes at430 and we got there about that time so we played and walked around the outside it was really nice laying in the grass and chasing each other around. Would do it again.

A beautiful building which also happens to be the tallest state capitol building in the United States - you can't get the entire thing in a photo from the back of the parking lot! Governor Huey Long, who proposed the new capitol project, was buried in the front gardens after being assassinated in this very building. Over his tomb there is a monument of Long which stands facing the capitol, so as to keep watch over Louisiana politics and remind current politicians of his sacrifices. The grounds themselves are beautiful and are flowering during all times of year. Pack a Sunday lunch and take a stroll around them. Then venture behind the building to the right, where you'll find a small lake and secluded seating area.
