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.

I visited the State Capitol on Wednesday, June 4, 2014. I arrived around 4:00 PM so was too late for a tour but was given a self-guided tour brochure. I thoroughly enjoyed all the beautiful art work in the building. After spending a couple of hours inside, I decided to venture outside to take photos of the grounds. This is... More

We stopped by late on a Friday evening. The grounds are fantastic. The state capital is absolutely huge! You kind of stand there in awe of the vastness of the Romanesque feel. If you have the time and especially if you are an Oklahoman, you need to stop by and experience this building while it is still here!

A must see for government/ politics fanatics. The Capitol isn't as nice as the Texas Capitol is...but most things in OK aren't as nice as TX.

The docent took a political rather than a historical approach in his tour. Thus, the focus was on how many people in a district, how the Supreme Court functions, and the political process of how a bill becomes a law. I like history much more and already understand the political process; so, this just was not for me. However, if... More
