I visited the Oklahoma State Capitol on a Saturday, so a guided tour wasn't available (they are only offered during weekdays). However, the Capitol building was open for self-guided tours. The public entrance to the Capitol is located on the side of the building and you have to go through a metal detector at the security checkpoint. Once inside the... More

We visited the State Capitol building on a Saturday. Since I am from the California State Capitol I wanted to check out the competition. No one was around. It was July 4th weekend and there were a few cars (mostly law enforcement) in the parking lots. The main entrance was closed and we had to wander to find the entrance... More

Enjoyed this visit. Great for a quick stop & tour of the state house. Also great for a nice stroll. My teenagers were pokemoning around the Capitol & they were pleased! I took many pictures that I enjoyed. 1-2 hrs is more than enough time to visit and it's free. Lots of areas where there are benches & shade trees.

This is a pretty capital building. It's been recently restored and they have many interesting painting and portraits if you are interested in Oklahoma history. They have a self guided tour booklet, and they let you explore at your own pace. It's cool that they give you free reign of the building, but the tour booklet didn't go into in... More

A very impressive building with beautiful grounds, make sure to go around the back of the building and look at the memorial.

Although you can do a self-guided tour of the capitol building, we arrived in time to take a guided tour. Our guide, Bill, was exceptionally knowledgeable about Oklahoma history, the building, and all of the artwork. The tour included visits to Senate and House chambers. Photography was encouraged. There is so much history and beauty to experience on this tour,.

If you are here, it is worth the trip to see the capitol. It is a bit dated, but full of history. As many know, the capitol was actually in Guthrie, Ok at the start of statehood. It was a middle of the night theft of documents and seals. It makes interesting reading!!! Go by if you are in town!!

We made a quick sop to see the State Capitol during our Route 66 trip. There is parking, but it is a ways back from the building. We did mot go inside.

Ask the visitor-desk for a map, it helps you a lot. Start on the fifth floor and walk (or take the elevator) down. Don't forget the office of the governor and the lieutenant-givernor.

We happan to visit the place on a Sundy and the access was surprisingly easy after a quick and sympathic security clearing. We were allowed to visit on our own all the floors and we could envoy without hassle all the paintings and scultures. A must for the visitors of OKC
