The Capitol Complex is in the heart of downtown Austin, and its various facilities serve employees on state business as well as visitors observing the legislative process, strolling the grounds, or learning about Texas history.  Free Capitol tours (generally 45 minutes in length) are conducted daily and feature the Capitol, Texas history, and the Texas legislature.

 

The Capitol Visitors Center (southeast corner of the Capitol grounds) is housed in the three-story castle-like structure of the restored 1856-57 General Land Office building, the oldest state office building in Texas.
