Nearly nine months after closure, the Texas State Preservation Board will reopen the Texas State Capitol grounds to the public tomorrow.


While the Capitol building will remain closed to the public, Austinites are free to roam the Capitol Grounds from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

SPB said it is working with outside agencies to make the grounds available during this time.

The Capitol originally barred public access to the building and grounds on March 18, when the Texas SPB decided to stop traffic due to the pandemic.

The Capitol building remains open for workers.
