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.

Love to walk around the capitol building and admire the structure (in need of repairs and is getting it). Inside is some great art work and is a must to see.

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

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
