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.

It was late when we arrived, but we enjoyed driving around the capitol building. It's very impressive. We come from the capitol city of Missouri.

This building I'd definitely worth a visit. There is plenty of parking in High St. Good photos can be taken from all sides and tours are held weekdays. We arrived on a Sunday so I can't comment on the tour.

We arrived on Sunday so we could not go on a tour but have to say this is a very beautiful building, one of the best we have seen during our tour of the US.

We were on a tight travel schedule the day we visited so even though we were there before a tour time we chose to do a self guided tour instead. The tour guides were very friendly and helpful in getting us the proper information sheets...More

Visited the Capitol around 7pm. This area very tranquil. Saw a few people walking this area for exercise. Great access to take pictures up close. Can take pictures of each side of building with ease. Downtown seemed very peaceful and quiet.

If you're looking for something to do in Jackson, I'd go here. There a free guided tours (not sure how often they leave). We missed the tour, but you are still able to guide yourself through.

The website says it is open for self-guided tours Mon-Fri 8-5, with free guided tours Mon-Fri at 9:30, 11, 1 and 2:30. Hope this helps.

We found street parking across from the Capitol on Monday morning when the legislature was hurrying to finish its session. Depending on whether they are insertion, parking may be harder to find on the street.
