Parking    Entrances    Restrooms    American Sign Language Tours


Most visitors to the Michigan State Capitol come to tour the building, observe legislative session, or participate in the legislative process by meeting with legislators or testifying before legislative committees.

The goal of the Michigan State Capitol Commission and Capitol staff is to ensure that every person visiting the Michigan State Capitol is treated with respect. Everyone should be able to enjoy a tour, observe the legislature, and participate in the legislative process.

The Michigan Legislature, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ensures that individuals with disabilities shall not be excluded from participating in, or be denied, the benefits of any program, service, or activity offered by the Legislature

The purpose of this section is to advise persons with disabilities of the services and accommodations available at the Michigan State Capitol.
