“Gift shop is huge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

This is self-guided 2nd floor and 3rd floor and was nice to see. Can be confusing about which halls and elevators to use/not use. We loved the gift shop!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

What a fasinating history, city, and state. Montgomery is a great place to visit and the Capitol has to be on your list of things to do. It's a huge complex and the whole downtown is so convenient and all within walking distance.
