Welcome to your Minnesota Capitol

The State Capitol building will be open to the public Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM starting Thursday, June 10, 2021 and continue to remain locked on weekends.  All members of the public who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering.

The Capitol Complex mall and Leif Erikson Park are available for exterior events or gatherings. For outdoor events, all capacity limits and distancing requirements have been eliminated.

Please check back regularly, this site will be updated with the latest information. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

The newly restored Capitol includes nearly 40,000 square feet of new or restored public gathering space. New space includes meeting rooms, working and relaxing space, gallery space, and expanded dining areas.

Members of the public can reserve spaces in the Capitol for events, meetings, and other gathering purposes. Additionally, many of these public spaces can now be reserved for use after normal business hours (this will require additional information and usage fee).
