Visitors can tour this government building that sits on a knoll, overlooking downtown to the east and the Arkansas river to the north, and bears a striking resemblance to the U.S. Capitol building.

The Arkansas Capitol is a monument to the state's history with its manicured lawn and historical markers. An obvious must see if you're in Little Rock.

I don't think you have really seen a state until you've seen its capitol. Usually enjoy formal tours, but for some reason that wasn't possible the day I was there. Nevertheless, had a wonderful experience talking with an employee, who told me many things I would have been lucky to get on a tour. I had a lovely visit to... More

They take a ;]picture of you holding bundles of real money, something we never experienced before any place, and they then put your picture on their website. The people were also friendly and fun to meet

My guy and I attended the lighting of the Capitol and firework show, and then shuffled in with masses to see the beautiful tree inside, watch the kiddos visit Santa, and tour around the open room. As a history student, I enjoyed the small displays on the upper floors. It was fun listening to various choirs and bands throughout the... More

It was free and you were free to go almost everywhere. I happened to be there during their lunch break so I did not get to see either congress house in action. There were many exhibits and art works. Quite interesting to spend 1-2 hours.

Definitely worth a visit if you have some free time. It is a nice walk around the capitol as well, with some memorials and art worth seeing. Try to schedule a (free) tour if you are a big company or 'ride along' one - a lot of little interesting facts that you won't hear otherwise. If I am not mistaken,... More

Our group was greeted and given a tour. Everything went great! We met our representatives, and were able to find information we were looking for.

The scenery was pretty. The bathrooms were HUGE! No joke- there were like 20 foot tall doors for the stalls with their own sinks and whatnot! There was pretty landscaping and an interesting gift store. I enjoyed learning about the architecture..
