In response to the ongoing threat posed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Michigan State Capitol Commission is suspending all tours and events in the Michigan State Capitol building. The building will continue to be open for official House and Senate business.

The Michigan State Capitol opened on January 1, 1879, to great acclaim. Designed by architect Elijah E. Myers, Michigan’s Capitol holds a special place in American history as one of the first state capitols to be topped by a lofty cast iron dome. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992.
