The first thing you see when you walk into the visitor center — which is in what is essentially the Capitol’s walkout basement — is a 12-by-25-foot marble floor map of the state of Kansas, with all 105 counties represented. At left is the new gift shop, which sells everything from chocolate-covered sunflower seeds to plush box turtles (Kansas’ state reptile) and business card-size rectangles. -Kansas City Star Magazine
