Patterned after the National Capitol, this has been the Capitol building for the state of Mississippi since 1903. Today it is major tourist attraction as well as the focus of Mississippi state government activities.

Jackson is the capitol of Mississippi. While I'm not big on politics, most likely, the reason you are in Jackson other than seeing family has something to do with the capitol. It's an impressive building and gives a sense of what voters across the state...More

We definitely recommend the tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. The building is very well kept and we enjoyed the activity because the legislature was in session. Many interesting facts and features. A great place to put on your list to visit.
