Welcome to your Minnesota Capitol


The State Capitol building is open Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM and remains closed on weekends. Face coverings must be worn inside at all times by person's entering the State Capitol.  This requirement conforms with the face covering policy in place in the cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.


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).

Book a Space – Online Reservation System


The State of MN network is experiencing technical difficulties with some web-based programs, and the Capitol Complex Reservation System is affected. We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible.  In the meantime, if you are interested in reserving space at the Capitol, conference room or ceremonial public spaces, please call us for assistance at 651-201-2300 or email us at fmd.inquiry@state.mn.us.

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you in advance for your cooperation.


Our reservation system allows you to research rooms and venues, check availability, and book space from your tablet, mobile phone, or computer. To get started:

  1. Check space availability for your date, time, and location using our Events Calendar
  2. Reserve your date, time, and location using our online Reservation system
  3. Further instructions will be provided after you have made an event reservation.

For more information on event permits, equipment rental, and event planning resources, see our Public Events page. If you have questions or need help with reservations, email fmd.inquiry@state.mn.us or call 651-201-2300.
