’s opulence overwhelms the senses before you even step inside. Capitol Building
Pay attention to the restrictions on the list provided when you pick up your tickets for the free tour of the
Capitol Building. Any items on that list will be trashed before the tour begins. Plan to take this tour before doing any shopping just to be on the safe side. People sat the tour out so they wouldn’t have to throw away purchases they’d made before arriving.
Also in the basement is the room where the Supreme Court convened for many years. It’s preserved for tour groups to see a bit of the Court’s history. It’s a dark, gloomy room especially when compared with the Supreme Court Building across the street. One can easily see why it’s somewhat affectionately referred to as the dungeon.
