The state capitol had the largest collection of artwork I've seen in a capitol building or any other public building. The pieces are massive and exquisite. There is an option of a self-guided tour or guided tour on the hour.

We just walked around outside and took some photos. Grounds are very well manicured. Like all the stars on the sidewalk.

We visited the Oklahoma State Capitol as two east coasters who had never been to Oklahoma before. We were able to join a free guided tour where we spent 45 minutes seeing the building and learning about Oklahoma's government as well as famous Oklahomans. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to suit the audience of the... More

We made a trip downtown to the capital building for the tour, but wasn't really totally "impressed" by the capital building. We went on the tour and thought we would get to see more of the dome and learn about the history of the state and the building. The tour was focused more in the art work than the history.... More

We enjoy visiting the state capitols across the country. We did a self guided tour here. There is a lot of artwork throughout the building. We found the people working there to be friendly and helpful when we had questions.

We didn't have time to go inside but drove around the capitol building and the architecture is magnificent. It was just awesome to see the outline of the buildings and how they fit into the scenery around the Capitol.

This is the landmark no doubt. Not much to say other than you must see it. This must be on your top three list to do! It was closed. If I'm back in town, I will make sure I come back when it is open. Many photo ops. I also love the free parking and easy access to the grounds.

Thought our Capitol was pretty unique to be the only one without a dome, then the Domer's came along in the late 90's wanting a dome installed. Well, anytime you add structural weight and have people climbing all over a 100 year old building you are going to have trouble, sure enough. Now they are going on about how our... More
