Description
- Architect: Elijah E. Meyers

- Length and Width (max): 120.1m x 83.5m

- The Michigan State Capitol contains the best example of Victorian-era decorative art in the United States of America.

- A restoration of this building took place from 1987 to 1992.

- The building sits on 1.16 acres of land in the center of downtown Lansing on a small hill.

- This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

- The glass floor in the rotunda is made of 976 blocks of glass. The higher into the dome you get, the floor appears to fall in an optical illusion creating an upside down dome effect.

- The capitol's thin dome has only four small floors. And the rotunda inside is only 44' in diameter at its widest point.
