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.

Although Atlanta was not the first capital of Georgia it is the present one and the capitol is definitely worth a visit. As most capitol buildings it is very beautiful with its own unique take on the building embedded in Georgia history. There is a museum with unique artifacts on the top floor concerning Georgia history with a wing devoted... More

We visited late one afternoon and it took a walk around the entire building before we were able to find a way inside (a ground level entrance off MLK, Jr. Drive). The capitol grounds and building are not as beautiful or large as some capitol buildings, but there are fun portraits and statues. I particularly enjoyed the contrast of the... More

Stop in soon to see the huge Christmas Tree & Christmas decorations. Truly a nice visit..!! I have been in Georgia 23 years & this was my first visit. Truly enjoyed all the huge paintings including General Lee. All the marble is cool too. Very very clean Capitol.

We really enjoyed visiting much more than expected. Even though we were not on a organized tour, there were enough guides and even a senator to explain what the different rooms signified. i especially enjoyed being able to actually see the Governor's office; All 4 floors are packed with history; it was also so much bigger than i expected....Capitol definitely...

We have made it a habit to stop at state capitols whenever we get the chance. You always learn a lot of stuff and it is interesting to see the variety in design. This particular building, although very large, is a little austere on the inside. It was built on a budget and that budget was met (what a concept,... More

We had a free tour during the off season. Lots of artifacts, in fact, the entire top floor is a museum. Take at least a couple of hours to see it all. If you stop in the Governor's office you can sigh the guestbook (they will send you a Christmas Card!) and get a little bag of Georgia peanuts! Wonderful... More
