Welcome to your Minnesota Capitol

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. This new space will better accommodate visitors to the Capitol in three important ways:

  • Encouraging year-round public use of the People's House;
  • Making it easier to participate in the democratic process;
  • Increasing transparency between the government and the people.

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 include additional information and may include a fee). Keep reading to find out how you can take advantage. Admin staff are here to help you enjoy your Minnesota Capitol!
