The Michigan State Capitol Tour Guide and Information Service is a unit of the Michigan State Capitol Commission. Our purpose is to share the Capitol’s extraordinary history, art, architecture and use with the public and to help visitors better understand how laws are made. We also serve as hosts and hostesses in the building, directing visitors, answering questions, and assisting all who enter. Our goal is to make every visitor feel welcome in their Capitol.
