It was difficult finding the entrance, not well marked. Once we entered we went through security - the guard was welcoming and gave us a guide and told us about what was on each floor and what was open. The building itself is a bit run down, could use some maintenance. The museum on the 4th floor is a self-guided... More

This is an old capitol building built in the late 1800s. Beautiful architecture. When we checked in at the tour desk the guide said that they only provide groups of 10 or more guided tours but since it wasn't busy she graciously gave the two of us a guided tour anyway. A unique feature of this capitol building is the... More

lots of history about Georgia and the United States of America and its easy access right in the middle of downtown Atlanta.

we spent a very pleasant 2 hours looking around the state capital.An insight into american history and how laws are made. Get a free packet of Georgian peanuts the best in the world or so we were told by the receptionist.

We strolled over to the Capitol after visiting Underground Atlanta to get some pictures on the grounds. While there we decided to go in and check out the inside. Walking in required us to go through airport-like security. After that, there wasn't much going on the day we visited and we were free to walk around. We didn't spend a... More

A deceptively large four storied Capitol building just south of downtown and easily reached on the Marta. The building has a traditional golden dome and stands in small grounds containing a number of interesting statues. After the usual security process you can get a short leaflet on the exterior of the building and do a self-guided tour. We were advised... More

I've been to 40 of the state capitols and the close setting of this building, almost in the heart of downtown Atlanta, is very different from most. There is no sprawling lawn or gate to go through. It's on a main thoroughfare and you just walk right up which is what makes it imposing. Nevertheless, the architecture is impressive and... More

I have personally visited over 25 state capitols and this one is by far one of the worst. I expected so much more. It was plain, humdrum, and in need of repair/remodeling. There was nothing above average in this building. The capitol "museum" is located on the top floor. It consists of exhibits in older display cases.

We had some time to kill waiting to go to the airport so we went on a tour of the capital building. It wasn't really a tour we just walked around and saw the museum up on the fourth floor. Congress was not in session so we did not get to see anything in action but we did get to... More

There is no guided tour (at least when we were there) but you get a leaflet with some information. No entrance fee, of course. The usual security checks. Very friendly. The "museum" is on the fourth floor and they have all kinds of display cases there with information about the state, the legislative procedure, the wildlife of the state, the... More
