Sitting majestically atop Albany's State Street hill, the New York State Capitol has served as the seat of government for New York since the 1880s. The building is a marvel of late 19th century architectural grandeur. Under the direction of five architects, the Capitol was built by hand of solid masonry over a period of 32 years. By 1899 its cost had exceeded twenty-five million dollars.
Tours of the Capitol are available Monday through Friday at 10, 12, 2 and 3, and by reservation on the 2nd Saturday of each month only. Closed Sundays & Holidays.
Tours begin at the Information Desk in the State Street Lobby of the Capitol. Audio Tours available Monday through Friday.
