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.

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.

There is nothing like visiting history - past and present! Whether you are young or old, don't miss seeing the Capitol. By the way, this Capitol building is a replica of the nation's Capitol in Washington, DC and has been used as a "stand in" in movies!!

Very pretty, big capitol. You can tour for free. Under construction at the moment, but still cool to check out.

Tours on the hour. Beautiful capitol. Friendly capitol staff from State Trooper in Security to Treasury Dept employees and the kind lady in the Assessor's Office who gave my kiddos treats. You can hold $400k cash inside the 103yo vault, and see original survey documents used for the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.

We've visited over a dozen state capitals now with more to come. This was in our bottom half for uniqueness, splendor, and quality. The Saturday we visited we spent much of our time dodging a large film crew using the site to film some kind of Christian movie, but we were able to see most of the open rooms. No... More

Beautiful structure and we were impressed with all go the marble. We even had a State Representative welcome us and speak to us while we were walking around and looking.

The Arkansas State Capitol is iconic as one would expect state capitols to be. However we were there during the end of the Legislative session so we saw a flurry of activity going on between chambers which was neat to witness.

A quick visit will show you all you need if there is no session going on. There are painting of several of the previous governors with Bill Clinton on prominent display. Some of the rooms are accessible to visitors. Nice to see if you are in the area.

The capitol is open to visitors. Enjoy the structure, paintings, and especially the sculptures outside the building; one honoring firefighters, and one honoring the nine students entering high school ending segregation in Little Rock.

Very nice state capitol that is welcoming to visitors. It has been preserved/maintained perfectly. Gives one a sense of history and pride in our government facilities.
