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

have been trying to visit all state capitols on my trips from ND to Florida. I finally got to get inside the capitol at Atlanta. One needs to go through a metal detector so prepare ahead. The Govenors office just past the entrance I used looked very plain and unimposing compared to others I've seen. Turns out that it was... More

There is not a lot to see at the Capitol, especially when they finish early for the day. The 4th floor has a small museum of political events throughout GA's history.

Great architecture. Beautiful building, located on a bus line. Have a jog around. Not too far from Turner Field or the downtown area.

Nothing was very impressive about the Georgia State Capitol. Grounds were well kept. The major displays were at 4th floor. The dome was not pretty and was peeling paint! Parking was a problem. It was hard to find the parking place.

So far, I've visited 39 State Capitols...and unfortunately I was not overly impressed with the Georgia State Capitol. During my visit, the rotunda was closed since employees were decorating the area for the holidays. But, I was able to enter long enough to view a flat, painted ceiling--with much of the paint peeling away from the ceiling. The building is... More

This is probably one of the better things I saw while in Atlanta. It is a very pretty building. It is a bit under construction, but it is still pretty nice. I couldn't go inside when I went, and it was absolutely deserted. There were a few homeless people at the building next door but other than that, I saw... More
