Arrived for the 1:00 tour only the visitor desk was not manned. We were told that due to the lie number of visitors the guide had taken an extended lunch hour. We watched the video which gave a lot of the information, then did the self-guided tour of this interesting building.

We enjoyed seeing this capitol building! This capitol is similar to the one in Washington D.C. (Not a replica, however) Our guide was sweet and informative. Note: You have to call and schedule a guided tour of this capitol (unlike the one we visited in IL where they just do tours throughout the day). We did that, and received a... More

I have been on many vacations in my life, but I can definitely say that I have never seen a State Capitol as breath taking as this one, especially around Christmas time. The way it is lined in lights is absolutely beautiful. It is very tastefully decorated on the inside as well. Worth the trip there if you are ever... More

You can enjoy a visit to the state capitol anytime of the year, however don't forget to visit in the evenings at Christmastime, even Christmas Eve. Many people enjoy the outside lights but never take time to stop and walk through the inside. It's a great Christmas tradition.

Both inside and outside this building was something else. The amount of marble inside was something else. We were not allowed in all rooms like we have in other state capitol buildings, but the visual displays and the building itself more than made up for it. The grounds were also very well maintained and complemented the building well.

The capital is a really beautiful building, especially during Christmas. Wear shoes good for walking and stairs.

Staff was very nice. This was well worth the tour. I often take my wife and daughter to capitol buildings whenever we are close to one because they are free and tell a lot about the area we are visiting. The AR Capitol is no exception. What sets this apart from others that we have visited is that while we... More
