North Carolina Museum of Art

<p>There are many museums throughout Raleigh, so many, in fact, that some call the area the "Smithsonian of the South." The North Carolina Museum of Art is a standout amongst these great museums. The museum's permanent collection includes an impressive variety of works of art from all over the world. The 160-acre Museum Park is another truly spectacular art experience. This park gives visitors the opportunity to bike, walk, or meander around the sculptures and works of art that are scattered throughout the property. There is also an amphitheater on the grounds that hosts live music and movies throughout the summer months.</p>

Capitol Building

<p>There are many historical buildings to check out in Raleigh. The Greek Revival-style capitol building, which is a National Historical Landmark, lords over the city in Capitol Square. The capitol, with its 97-foot copper dome, was built back in 1840 and cost more than three times the city's annual income. The interior of the building is just as beautiful as the exterior. All around the rotunda are plaques and busts representing people and events from North Carolina&Otilde;s history. Guided tours, which take around forty-five minutes, are available throughout the year.</p>
