Welcome to the Utah State Capitol


Thank You Utahns! The Capitol is clean and bright thanks to volunteers who gave of their time, labor and resources…the Utah Way!


Effective March, 14th, 2020 the Utah State Capitol will be temporarily closed to visitors as a proactive measure to limit the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Utah State Capitol will be open for official state of Utah Business Monday -Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

For over a century, the State Capitol has been one of Utah’s most prominent landmarks. Designed by local architect Richard K. A. Kletting, the Capitol has been home to state government since its opening in 1916.

From 2004 to 2008, the Utah State Capitol underwent one of the largest historical preservation projects in the United States. In addition to safe-guarding the building against the risk of an earthquake, the project repaired and restored the original beauty and artwork of the Capitol. Each year, thousands of people visit the Capitol to witness its modern magnificence and historic significance.
