SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois’ Old State Capitol has re-opened to visitors after interior renovations were complet- ed. Visitors will see a new feature, an education gallery and video room.
Exterior work on the dome of the building continues, but indoor plaster work and painting is finished, allowing the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to open for tours on Thursday.
Its hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
The $1.5 million project is under the management of the Illinois Capital Development Board. It involves installing a new roof on the drum that supports the capitol dome and restoration of the drum’s columns and windows.
