  • You can buy my Austin coffee table photo book "Austin, Texas: A Photographic Portrait" in the Capitol Visitors Center gift shop. 128 pages of photos of Austin landmarks & attractions
  • In the spherical room where you can see the ceiling of the tower, stand on the star in the center and speak. You have to hear it to believe it!
  • I would just go to the capital building. Three isn't anything here that you can't get three and you can your three capital. Skip this.
  • Really like the model architectures at the visitor center! There is also a gift shop if someone wants to buy a souvenir.
  • Originally the Texas Land Commissioners Buidling, it is one of the oldest structures in Austin.
