Visitors to the capitol will find a unique blend of prairie-themed Art Deco styling. Designed in monumental scale with majestic proportions, visitors will see chandeliers representing heads of wheat; ceiling lighting representing the sunrise, moon and stars; and bronze elevator doors depicting the history of life on the prairie. The observation deck provides a 360-degree view of the Bismarck-Mandan area. The grounds are equally spectacular with many monuments and statues, as well as an Arboretum Trail with more than 75 types of trees and the trail passes statues and memorials which symbolize our state's history and heritage.

There are two new ways to experience a tour of the North Dakota State Capitol: self-guided on kiosks located throughout the Capitol, and virtually online.

There are five tablet kiosks, located around the Capitol. Each kiosk houses short videos describing the surrounding areas of interest, all of which can be also accessed online at

The tour videos are narrated by a Capitol tour guide and feature both historic and modern footage of the building. One kiosk is located on the Ground floor, three are on the 1st floor, and one is on the 18th floor. In-person visitors can follow maps from kiosk to kiosk or scan a QR code to take the tour on their smartphones.

Guided tours will continue to be available seven days per week through Labor Day weekend:

  • Monday through Saturday, on the hour from 9 - 11 a.m. and 1 - 3 p.m.
  • Sunday, on the hour from 1 - 3 p.m.
Those wishing to request in-person group tours should complete the tour request form on OMB’s website at
