LARGER and prettier than DC capitol because the material is a prettier color (sandstone or something?).
? The Capitol in DC is larger than the Capitol in Texas. Although Texas is the 4th tallest state capitol building.

Pa shots: Pennsylvania State Capitol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
pennsylvania state capitol - Google Image Search

The outside is up there, but the thing that really does it is the fantastic art in the interior.

WI's is beautiful, and its setting is magificent. It's on a low hill on a narrow isthmus between two beautiful lakes. It is surrounded by beautiful grounds that themselves are surrounded on all sides by Madison's thriving downtown.

I've always loved the Pennsylvania Capitol Building in Harrisburg.

I generally don't care for state capitols that are mere knock-offs of our national capitol. But that Iowa capitol building is pretty sweet!

I've always liked the Maryland State House. Not only is it a beautiful building, it's in a beautiful town, Annapolis.

It has less square footage than the National Capitol in Washington, D.C., but is 14 feet taller.[3]

So it's taller but less square footage.
