The Missouri State Capitol is notable for its architectural features, including its eight 48-foot (15 m) columns on the south portico and six 40-foot (12 m) columns on the north side; its 30-foot (9 m)-wide grand stairway and its bronze front doors.

The domed building was completed in 1917.

The Capitol's dome rises 238 feet (73 m) above ground level and is topped by a bronze statue of Ceres, goddess of vegetation.

The building's bronze front doors are the largest cast since the Roman era.

The north side of the building contains a frieze showing the history of Missouri by Hermon Atkins MacNeil while the theme is continued on the south side by Alexander Stirling Calder.
