The best thing that our state capital building impressi us with was the dome of this structure. This one addition to our capital building,put our capital on the same scale as our nations capital. To be found in Washington D.C.

The capitol has a lot of art from local artists. There are some gorgeous pieces through out the building.

Took the FREE guided tour of state capital and enjoyed the hour long presentation by retired teacher. Many topics were new to us so if you like a taste of history and interesting architecture, consider this activity.

From afar, the building is beautiful but from close up, the main building is surrounded by half-moon shaped buildings which are poorly labeled and are not friendly to the average person. At the same time, state workers were friendly and didn't care if you came in the wrong door or not!

Take the tour! See Woody Guthrie, Will Rogers, stories of the Sooners, historic paintings. The new dome is wonderful. Sunlight floods cavernous rooms and dramatic murals. Great history lessons provided at no cost. The Capitol is all about Oklahoma; you will find Oklahoma to be endearing indeed.

No one was around, a beautiful building but quite empty. Few historical markers, no guides. Parking was free though.

The murals alone are worth the visit. If you enjoy touring stately buildings then you should enjoy your visit here.
