    The Utah State Capitol is a government headquarters on a grand scale in many senses. It presides over much of the city at the end of the gently sloping State Street and has an incredible view over much of Salt Lake City. It was built between 1912 and 1916 and renovated in the past 10 years. It owes much to the Corinthian school of architecture and is adorned with statues of Utah notables.

    This building is beautiful inside and out, as most state capitols are. It's open to the public, but it is a working government office.

    This is a great capitol building! It sits atop the city and provides you with amazing views of the entire valley. Once you step inside you will find a vast and expansive place full of great local artwork that tells the story of how the city was founded.

    the outside is rather dull ,but very strong -when the tornado came along it passed over this building as if a whiper while it destroyed the pnearby Park with old growth trees
    the inside of this building is so very beautiful ! Fossilized marble ,and brass findings everywher I went to the Sweethearts Ball one year and felt very much like Cinderrella- The Utah Symphony had great accoustics here that evening -It was a great time !

    Beautiful impressive building which opens it's doors to the public daily to reveal an equality impressive marble interior- a free museum of sort within. At night this already impressive and imposing building lends it's self as a scenic view point of the glittering valley below. The Salt Lake Film Society also hosts a movie on the lawn during the summer- a fun community experience where neighbors gather and watch family friendly movies such as Sandlot (part of which were filmed in Utah) Nice place for visitors.

Description

Surrounded by greenery, Utah’s capitol building rises over Salt Lake City atop Capitol Hill. Its Neoclassical style adds a timeless feel to the Utah State Capitol Complex, often compared to the Greek Parthenon by viewers after its completion.
