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.

I think my favorite thing about our state Capitol is that it looks so much like our Capitol in Washington DC.

Drove by on a Saturday evening. Had to get out of the car and walk up to the bronze Tiffany doors. Very opulent.

We are visiting every state capitol and this is another beautiful building with easy access. Drive around and take time to visit. Note sculpture park on one side with the "Little Rock Nine".

A bit spartan with its paintings, the building is nevertheless magnificent in its stature and size. Lots of marble. The single most amazing experience is the treasury department. Unless you feel that holding almost half a million dollars is no big whoop, the trip to the vault makes it a must see visit.

This was a great place to visit. Everyone was sooo friendly. We learned so much. We even held $400,000 of Arkansas' money in our own hands!

There wasnt much of a guide for the self guided tour, you literally just walk wherever... More

Though it's widely promoted on,one as being open weekends and holidays, it is not! We spent a very hot Sunday walking around the entire perimeter trying all doors before someone informed us that it's closed on weekends!

Pretty cool actually!!!! Had a good time touring this place...and its nice to be able to just sit in and watch the House or the Senate! Everyone is very welcoming here and its always good to be able to hold $200,000 or so!!! Ask the staff...they'll tell you what that is!!!

I only have two active capitol buildings to compare, but this one, I felt was slightly better than Missouri's. That's primarily because the floor doors to the house and senate chambers were open, and you could step inside a little glass-enclosed both to observe from the view of the state legislators (these doors were not open during my second visit)....

People here are nice. And I think I even see the governor ! But it is under construction. Not very many visitors
