Each state is allowed to have 2 statues in the Capitol? Yep. It is up to the state to decide which statue they would like to be placed in the National Statuary Hall Collection.

There are a few rules for statues, however. The statues must be:

1) Made of either bronze or marble

2) A person who was a citizen of the state

3) A person who has contributed to history through distinguished civic or military services

Today, the National Statuary Hall Collection consists of 100 statues.
