The capital is a really beautiful building, especially during Christmas. Wear shoes good for walking and stairs.

Staff was very nice. This was well worth the tour. I often take my wife and daughter to capitol buildings whenever we are close to one because they are free and tell a lot about the area we are visiting. The AR Capitol is no exception. What sets this apart from others that we have visited is that while we... More

The Arkansas State Capitol Building looks a lot like the White House. Go take a tour - lots of history and the building is very cool.

Unfortunately we were there after hours but the grounds are beautiful. I was especially impressed with the Viet Nam Memorial. We walked the grounds and took a lot of photos. Watch for panhandlers throughout Little Rock. They were every where we went and some will follow you around hoping you'll relent and give them cash.

I never miss going to a Capitol building when I am in a state capitol city. Love to see them in and out. This is one where they have kept the large amount of grounds and not built on them. Lots of sculptures throughout the grounds. Looks great at night!

We visited the Capitol during free time as part of a cycling event. What a beautiful building this is. We enjoyed seeing the rotunda, gallery of former Governor's portraits and the senate chambers. The self guided tour pamphlet is well done and very instructive.

What a magnificent building, and the grounds with its various statues and memorials were wonderful, too. Stop first at the info desk where they have great free guide books, one for the building and one for the grounds. The latter includes descriptions of the trees and flowers also found there. Take time to explore the whole building since there are... More
