1 of 3

The state's capital, Jefferson City, is situated on the banks of the Missouri River amidst a picturesque landscape of tree-lined bluffs. The Missouri State Capitol, Supreme Court Building, and Governor's Mansion are all located in the historic downtown area. As a result of its historic government buildings and museums, the city exudes a sense of grandeur and sophistication.

The Cole County Historical Museum is an excellent resource for learning about the city's past. The state capitol building, the Governor's Mansion, the Missouri State Penitentiary, and the Missouri State Museum are some of the must-see attractions in the state. One of the most beautiful sculptures in town is the Lewis & Clark Monument at the Lewis & Clark Trailhead Plaza, located next to the state capitol building.
