Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

Is photography allowed in the Capitol building?

Some Capitol area buildings are restricting visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please confirm that the building you wish to visit accepts visitors before you arrive.

There are no restrictions for taking photographs in the Capitol - including using tripods/monopods or flash photography.

The only exception is for someone trying to set-up a photo shoot where a lot of equipment is required (i.e. Stand-alone lighting, taking up public space for a length of time, etc.). In that situation, permission is required. Contact the Minnesota Department of Administration's Facilities Management Office (651-201-2300).
