Visitors & Education

General Tips

Free guided tours of the Kentucky State Capitol are available Monday through Friday, beginning at the tour guide desk in the Rotunda. Call 502-564-3449 to schedule a tour. 

If you’re visiting during a legislative session (roughly January through April 15, depending on the year), you may also want to contact your legislators to see if they can arrange for gallery passes that allow you to watch the House or Senate proceedings. 

Legislative committee meetings year-round are open to the public, and no special passes are needed.

Always check the Legislative Calendar before making a trip to Frankfort to see if there have been any last-minute scheduling changes.

Do Some Research

We have some general interest publications about the legislative process along with a video presentation, A Look at the Kentucky General Assembly, that may help you prepare for a visit to the Capitol.
