We went late in the afternoon when the Assembly wasn't in session - the place was deserted. Beautiful building; looks like many state capitols!. Went into the lighted Treasury Department - got our photos taken while holding $200,000 in bills!

When you visit little rock make sure to see the attraction. Inside it is full of Marble which provide the beautiful look. We went to all the way up and took some pictures. There was some renovation work was going on. Because of the holiday the traffic was quiet.

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.
