Capitol Building tours are provided daily, including weekends, based upon the availability of volunteer tour guides and must be scheduled at least 48 hours (Business days) in advance. Please call 605-773-3688 to schedule your tour of the Capitol.

Tours take approximately one hour. Tours will begin at the North Entrance of the State Capitol unless other arrangements are requested when scheduling tours.
