Home to one of the largest capitol domes in the United States, the Kansas dome is the only one in the United States that continues to offer dome tours. There are 296 steps leading up from the fifth floor to the top of the dome.

The building was constructed in stages, the east wing 18661873, the west wing 18791881, and the center 18841906.

A large mural in the east wing, painted by Kansan John Steuart Curry, centers on an image of abolitionist John Brown. This is believed to be the only instance of a person convicted of treason being featured in a state capitol.
