We have visited many State Capitols and have enjoyed touring all of them. The Georgia Capitol has a lovely gold dome, but the interior is drab and could use some facelifts. There are numerous cracked floor tiles for example. In addition, unlike other states, there are no regularly scheduled tours or audio phones, so you have only a small brochure.Parking... More

We went for the free tour but we missed it. We were able to still explore the building and walk around there's an app that can assist in the history of the building. Lots of history and pictures, it was cool to see the the governor's office. We also were super impressed with the Senate hall, great place to visit... More

Of all the state capitols I've visited, I'd say that Georgia so far is rather functional and dour. True, it's a grand old building, but then so are most of them. It is in need of a little TLC in place and there is a lack of the kind of symbolism you see elsewhere. Staff we spoke to in security... More

Visit the "Gold Dome" Georgia State Capitol building and step back in history. (The gold on the dome came from the N. Georgia gold mines!) The giant marble staircase is a great place for a photo op. Step into the Georgia Secretary of States office and spend a few minutes jawboning with Brian Kemp! Old statues and paintings abound -... More

Trying to get out of the Georgia heat, we took a trip to the Georgia Capital. Currently under construction, it took away from some of its beauty- but it's grand nevertheless. Beautiful portraits inside and a quaint museum collection on the top floor - with everything from geological exhibits to flying squirrels and two headed snakes!

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.
