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 State Capitol is a beautiful place that's the seat of government for our state. It's a great place to visit and is well kept and a wonderful place inside full of the history of the state.

I have visited the Arkansas State Capitol many times over the years as a high school student as well as a college student, and have enjoyed every trip. I always find myself becoming intrigued by the way government operates even at the state level. It is interesting to talk and hear from representatives and the senate. A great learning experience...

Out of numerous state capitols we have visited, the people we met here were the friendliest and went the extra mile for visitors. At the Treasurer’s office, they took us into the bank vault and handed us $400,000 in cash to hold while they took our picture. They then gave you a commemorative coin with the picture of the current... More

My wife and I enjoyed driving around this beautiful and imposing building on a delightful, sunny early March day (7 Mar 2015) as we were taking our time driving from the Financial Center Parkway area eastward to downtown. Many years ago we had taken time to walk around the grounds and take some wonderful photographs. I remember fondly being able... More

Worth a visit if you are in the area, especially to see the monument on the Little Rock Nine on the lawn. Entrance to the capitol is under the front steps in the car drive through area.

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
