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.

Nice visit to the capitol building. Some renovation going on so a little distractive, but overall the building's interior is beautiful. Visited inside the Bank for a tour of the vault. Friendly staff and interesting learning the history of the vault. Also visited the Office of the Governor where we were treated to cold water, much appreciated on a very... More

Took a tour with my sister and niece last Friday. Very informative tour guide. Gave us plent of time for pictures. Took time to answer all of my niece's questions about the building and lawmaking in Arkansas. Be sure to stop by the State Treasurer's Office for a tour of that office. Highlight of the day! We had a wonderful... More

They were closed, it was Sunday. The grounds and buildings were well kept and we enjoyed looking around and taking pictures.

We are fans of visiting State Capitols around the USA so this was a must see for us. However, having missed a guided tour we chose to make our own way around and this was possibly the reason why we found it less interesting than most. The interiors are rather plain and without a guide, it's possible that we missed... More

I visited the Arkansas State Capitol on a Saturday, so the guided tour wasn't available (they are only offered 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays). However, the Capitol was open for self-guided tours. One tip, you cannot enter the building through the large bronze front doors. The entrance to the capitol is in the vehicle tunnel under the front... More

I have been a few other state capital in the US. With the self guided tour you can take as long or as short as you want. We watched a video put on the visitors desk and were provided with maps and left to wonder around.

You'll not find many state capitals as beautiful as this one. The detail is great, and the marble floors and tile floors and columns are breathtaking.

The tour was very informative and positive about Arkansas history and it's policies now. Free one hour guided tour on the hour weekdays. Capitol is simpler than others we have seen but very nice in its own way.

The Christmas displays and ongoing performances are delightful. This is a great place to go during the holidays. It is a beautiful building so its worth a visit any time of year.

We stopped on Saturday so it was quiet but you could still see the house and senate. It was a very good visit and it is always interesting to compare the aesthetics to other capital buildings we have visited.
