Gorgeous building and grounds! My son and I were on a roadtrip and stopped to visit the State Capitol. It is definitively worth the detour!!!

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.

This place is falling apart. The state should be ashamed. Why would you allow your state capitol to get in such disrepair.

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

With the current political discord, I wonder; if building state capitals were up today’s legislatures, would they get built at all? I suspect they would rent posh meeting space from their wealthy supporters and leave the taxpayers with nothing but the bill. But past lawmakers were a little more farsighted and left palaces as state houses in many states. With... More

We did the self guided tour of the State Capital. It was a very nice mix of history, art, and architecture. We liked being able to do it on our own, at our own pace. if you have an hour, go check it out!
