Memorials and Monuments: Minnesota State Capitol Grounds Walking Tour
Visit the Cass Gilbert State Capitol grounds a mall of memorials, sculptures, carved walkways and hidden treasures. Hear stories not told in books, but brought to life in bronze, woven metal trellis, spiraling pyramids, paving stones and hammered steel by creative artists.
Dress for the weather and bring water. Most of the walking tour is on paved walkways, and there are very few places to sit. Please note that this tour is of the grounds only; we will not be going inside the Capitol.
Register by and no refunds after April 20th. If needed due to inclement weather, the rain date will be May 3rd.
Tour will begin from the steps of the Minnesota State Capitol: 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Saint Paul, MN 55155.
