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 last time we visited the capitol grounds it was at night so we did not get to see much other than the lit dome. This time we made it during the day and there is so much more to the grounds. For us the highlight was probably the monument dedicated to the Little Rock 9. There is a lot... More

This is a magnificent building, which was closed so external photos were the order of the day as the snow lay al around. No traffic so we had plenty of time to get those snaps.

The state capital itself is nothing special but this is where you will find the bronze statues of the Little Rock 9. Well worth seeing as the represnt the history brilliantly. Highly recommend you make the effort.

It is a very impressive building. We did not visit the interior (not even sure if you can), but make sure to check out the statues and monuments around it while driving.

This is a great time to visit the capital at night! We took a limo to see the lights in and around Little Rock and this was our first stop! It's neat to walk up to the top of the stairs and see the lights and flags at night! You gotta see this in the holiday season!

My children who are 10 and younger appreciated the beauty in the Capital building. Don't miss the statues of the Rock Nine outside.

It is unreal how much work went in to this building. Everything about this place is overwhelming from the floor to the surreal murals and amazing craftsmanship. My jaw was dropped my entire visit. The Capitol police are all extremely nice and I have never felt safer in my life. Breathtaking is an understatement when describing this beautiful work of... More
