A grand building at a perfect location. Travel on Capitol Ave and Lok back, it presents a nice view.

We visited before Christmas and enjoyed the significant display of Christmas related decorations and school choirs singing in the rotunda. They also had a surprisingly nice gift shop where we purchased some items for our grandchildren. We saw the government in action as we glanced at a meeting in progress with people around a large table, others seated around the... More

This is a great place to visit, especially at Christmas. It's open later in the evening during the Christmas holiday. There are lots of photo opportunities. Free self guided tour books are available too.

Great place to relax and unwind while looking at great views of the city. Safe area with lots of things to do. The River market is not far, and plenty of hotels to choose from in this area.

Very pretty grounds, well worth a visit. The replica liberty bell is quite nice and you can get close up! Enjoyed an hour or so looking around!

They could not have picked a better place to put their capitol building. It is really awesome when you turn on the street and look up to see this beautiful building. We spent hours looking at all of the statues, pictures and information inside. The craftmanship that is used to build Capitol buildings makes one very proud to be an... More

Is there some sort of cookie-cutter that cranks out state capitols? It seems like most of them look alike - dome on top, spaces for the legislature, lots of columns. Welcome, then, to Arkansas's version, which will turn 100 in 2015. This is a relatively simple version as these things go. There is space for the State Senate and House,... More

gets a poor rating. According to the brochure guided tours can be arranged by calling before 4.00 so I called shortly after 3.00 and got no answer. When we arrived at 3.45 the young lady at the visitors' desk managed to tear herself away fr/ her conversation long enough to say that there were no more tours for the day--despite... More
