During legislative sessions, you can observe your Legislature in committee and chamber floor sessions, meet with your legislator, testify, or submit testimony in writing.
Located on the first floor you’ll find the Capitol History Gateway exhibits. These exhibits highlight ways in which ordinary citizens have affected state legislation, and ideas for how you can too.
Of course, the Capitol isn’t the only historical building in town. Be sure to visit Willamette Heritage Center, Deepwood Museum & Gardens, Bush House Museum, and take the walking tour of downtown Salem.
If it’s your first time here, we hope you leave inspired to return. Our state needs citizens like you to continue building a stronger Oregon.
