Nice building

Used this as a starting point in OKC. Impressive capital building worth the visit and a few photos. Easy to get to and visitor parking right across from the from of the building.

The place is falling apart. It is really a beautiful building on the outside. But, inside their are cracks, leaks, plumbing problems, dark dreary basement. All in all, by pass the tour.

I love visiting our great state Capitol. It is just a beautiful place of history. I really enjoy viewing all the beautiful pieces of artwork located there. If you live here and have never visited our Capitol, you really should. It is a great place.

The capitol is a beautiful building that was only just recently completed. Unfortunately, the visiting hours are not accurate. On my recent visit, the building was closed with no explanation. The Veteran's Memorial, Meeting Place Memorial, outdoor statues, and oil rigs, though, made up for the inability to see the inside.

Website said hourly tours, but no guide as previous tour was running late. I was told it would be best to do a self-guided tour. I was given the guide book which was a great help. Some nice paintings and sculptures. I would suggest calling ahead to book a tour. I feel I missed some history going without the guide.

You don't need to be from Oklahoma to enjoy this interesting State Capitol Building. Construction of the building occurred between 1914-1917. However, due to budget constraints, material shortages during WWI, and other issues the dome was not erected until 2002. Atop the dome is the magnificent statue of "The Guardian," a Native American statue sculpted by Enoch Kelly Haney. The... More
