Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

My friends and I visited the Virginia state capital recently and we greatly enjoyed the free tour. Our tour guide had a great wealth of knowledge, and we certainly enjoyed asking him a lot of questions. We also enjoyed the fact that afterwords we could wander around as long as we want it inside the building. The building itself is just gorgeous.

Tours meet on the second floor and occur throughout the day.

Mine was very well done. The guide was thoroughly knowledgeable about the history of the building and the Commonwealth of Virginia, and provided a thorough introduction to the space and to early Virginia history. Probably the best free tour that I have had anywhere.

The building itself is gorgeous and worth a visit. Unfortunately, the grand entrance with stairs is "closed to the public" and one must enter through the side door and pass through a magentometer and have bags and small items X-rayed.

A trip to the Virginia State Capitol has been on my bucket list for several years now, and I finally got to go. While the history there is amazing, and the grounds are very picturesque, dotted with statues here and there, the grounds were under construction, which visually impairs some of the pictures I took. That and the removal of statues in the building are why I rate this four stars instead of five.

My wife and I - tourists from the UK - joined one of the guided tours of the Virginia State Capitol building. We love visiting the US and were in the middle of a tour of historic Virginia.
The tour was not exactly what we expected. That's not a criticism. We had just assumed that it would include a balance between the history of the building and its contemporary use by the state legislature. In fact, the tour was largely focused on its history. There was not a lot of focus on how the building is used today.
For example, we had assumed that we might learn something about how the state legislative process works, but this wasn't to be the case. Perhaps citizens of Virginia know that side of things very well already. Perhaps the guide wanted to steer 100% clear of contemporary politics.
The history side of the building was nevertheless interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable about both the building itself and about the history of the Virginia legislature.
Our only quibble with historical accuracy was when he compared portraits of Thomas Jefferson with portraits of Louis XVI (of France) and George III (of England). Louis and George were dressed in regal finery with gold crowns on their head, while Jefferson was dressed in a humble overcoat. Our guide remarked that this was because the two kings considered themselves anointed by God, while Jefferson considered that he was empowered by, and accountable to, the people.
That's not really correct. In the late 18th century, there was no TV, internet or other forms of visual communication. One of the most important ways that kings and queens expressed and projected their raw national power was via portaiture. The difference in the clothing and regalia in the portraits was an accurate expression of the relative power of the three countries at that time. England and France were then the most powerful countries in the world, while America consisted of 13 squabbling colonies at the periphery of the known world, with close to zero influence outside its own borders.
Of course, things have changed since then. Nowadays, the US President travels around in The Beast followed by a totally unecessary motorcade of 20 more vehicles, while the British Prime Minister goes in a Jaguar XJ followed by a couple of Range Rovers. That's one way in which a modern day President communicates his position as the leader of the most powerful nation in the world.
Anyway, thanks for the tour, it was well organised and very informative. And free by the way.

Gorgeous grounds, beautifully manicured. Some construction / renovations going on, but still nevertheless, a very worth visit. Tons of history and things to learn about. One of the few state capitols that does not have a dome. Definitely a worthy visit.

Definitely worth a visit of this historic capital building (not the most grand I've seen but so much history) and it's free. Make sure you take some time and opt for the guided tour (no charge). There are many historic painting and statues. The life size statue of George Washington is the only only one he actually posed for so it is truly his likeness. Plan to spend anywhere from 1-2 hours.

I loved the Virginia State Capitol! I have visited a few Capitol buildings now and this is by far one of the nicest public buildings I have visited. I would highly recommend the tour if you have two or three hours while visiting Richmond. I was impressed by how functional the building still is while preserving Virginia’s rich legislative history.

A must see in Richmond. Take a free guided tour to learn the history of the building. Walk around the grounds to view the various statues.
