I had a great tour of the Oklahoma state capitol and left learning more about the whole state. Beautiful interior and with lots of photo opportunity in good light. Nicely preserved historic pieces, panting, furniture, murals. The tour was free and allows you into many otherwise closed off areas of the capitol.

Somehow we missed the visitor parking and ended up in a car park reserved for Press. We crossed a couple of busy roads and approached the state capitol. The front entrance is blocked off but signs direct you round to an entrance at the side of the building. To tell you the truth we were a bit underwhelmed with the... More

We left hotel and reached there in the morning. The trees outside had beautiful shade and very scenic building in the background. Not many people yet. Seemed very clean and well maintained landscaping. The people in the front door to the building were very helpful about the tour inside the building. Beautiful interior and with lots of photo opportunity in... More

This was neat!! Sitting in on House of Reps & Senate meetings! Seeing first hand the back and forth process of getting bills passed! Exploring the capitol and seeing the amazing architecture, art, etc.. Meeting some of the officials! Going during the week while senate and house meetings are in progress is definitely worth it!

If you are Oklahoman, and you have never visited your state capitol....it's time to check it out. It's a nice building and shows a lot of history. If you're lucky the house or senate will be in session and you can sit in the balcony and watch the proceedings.

Years of neglect and no funding have left the State Capitol in disrepair. Two weeks ago we waited in an hallway to get a photo taken for two hours...and no air conditioning in the middle of summer. Worth a visit for kids, but not much else.

Would definitely recommended a guided tour, although self-guided tours are also available (with a very interesting and extensive brochure from the welcome center). I was impressed by the various forms of art (quilting, paintings, murals) throughout the capital reflecting various aspects of Oklahoma history and culture. Definitely worth an hour of your time.

Lovely building with a fascinating history. If you take time to read the suggestions in the self-guided tour ahead of time, it all comes to life. Sadly, the state constitution was not on display when we were there, but there were plenty of interesting pieces of state history on display.
