“Great Structure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The final of our capitol stops on our tour was this classic capitol building located in Jackson, MS. One of the features of this building is you get the opportunity to see both the old and the new buildings as well as the war memorial building all within a short distance of each other. The grounds feature several Civil War monuments and memorials which tell the great history of the state.

“Great landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

We stopped by on a Thursday afternoon right at 5 pm. The guards allowed us to come in and view the inside.

Very interesting and absolutely beautiful. I think buildings like this are a rare gem. They just aren't building landmarks like this anymore. Our goal is to take out children to as many capitols as possible. Maybe they will appreciate it one day!

It's free to go in so why no go???
