TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Visitors to the Kansas Statehouse can once again make the long climb to see the sights from the dome, now that renovations to the building are complete.

Guides from the Kansas Historical Society lead free tours of the dome each weekday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Tours include a glimpse of the inner and outer domes of the Statehouse, as well as a 296-step climb to the top without an elevator. The tour gives a 360-degree view of Topeka and the surrounding countryside.

The dome was closed to visitors during part of the 13-year, $330 million Statehouse renovation. The building was dedicated on Jan. 29, the 153rd anniversary of Kansas statehood.
