TOPEKA, Kan. - The new year means a new way to greet visitors at the Kansas Statehouse. The last part of the 13-year renovation in Topeka was unveiled Thursday.
The renovations to the visitors center include an auditorium, classroom and exhibition space, all costing $330 million.
"An enormous amount of effort has gone into creating a visitors center that truly shares the Kansas experience with guests. This visitors center is a magnificent gateway to the capitol," Governor Sam Brownback said.
It is nearly completed, but a few final touches must be done first. A formal ceremony is set for January 29, also known as "Kansas Day."
