So we usually like to stop and take a picture of the Capitol building every time we're in the capital city. This place was extremely because there was construction everywhere. Hopefully it will be worth the stop.

The dome is visible from everywhere. Walked there from the UNDERGROUND area. Nice photo opportunities but was dead when we went on the weekend.

The Georgia State Capitol building is a beautiful building worth seeing. The dome is covered in gold leaf and the interior is rich with Victorian detail. The 4th floor has a free museum which gives a brief over few of the state's history. There is no charge for this attraction, staff were more than friendly and accommodating, and the building... More

The impressive exterior is worth seeing and the interior beautifully restored. The third floor is a museum of Georgia natural resources and history, worth seeing. Not too interesting other than that.

Sure was hard to park to see the capitol, but glad we found a place. The capitol is beautiful, detailed, well preserved and something that everyone should stop in and see. Capitols are free and you can't beat it for appreciating architecture and workmanship. This was an especially lovely capitol building.

This may not be the best building, grounds or location of state capitol building we have visited. But it was by far the most friendly. Everyone from the security guards to the officials went out of their way to be nice and pass on information. We were allowed access everywhere and signed the official visitors book in the governors office.... More

Beautiful building and grounds but the building was closed to tourists :( Very disappointing as we love to visit every capital building in the country.

I work in a state capitol so I wanted to stop by. Amazingly beautiful. The gold dome and history is amazing. I was mostly delighted by the museum on the top floor. Fascinating.
