The Texas State Capitol Building is by far the largest capitol building in the United States. For comparison, the Texas State Capitol has 667,700 square feet and the Washington DC Capitol building has 175,170 square feet. Most of the square footage is below ground in a very cavernous system of offices, but nonetheless it is the largest. Also, this building is one of the state’s most pristine examples of architecture both inside and outside. You can tour the capitol building free of charge year round on either a guided tour or just by wandering around on your own if you are tight on time.
