No cost, no tickets, and no reservation needed! Guides from the Minnesota Historical Society and a host of Capitol tenant volunteers will lead you on a tour of the Minnesota State Capitol building. Grand Opening Tours will include special behind-the-scenes looks at restored spaces including the Loggia and Quadriga, Governor's Office, the House and Senate Retiring Rooms, and the private Supreme Court Conference Room. Tours run all day, beginning every 30 minutes from the MNHS Information Desk. Dusk each day will feature a special viewing, raising, and lighting of the Rotunda Chandelier. Tours are about 45 minutes long.
