I've been to a couple of dozen state capitol buildings around the country. This one, though, is the only one with an oil well in the parking lot. Welcome to Oklahoma City. The... read more

If you have not visited the Oklahoma State Capitol you are missing out. It is an old building but has alot of character and there is a lot to see inside. The Capital Guards are are firendly and helpful. You are free to browse and see all the historic pictures of famous Oklahomans, artwork and history of this great state.

The Capitol building is rather big. It has at least 5 floors containing many offices & artwork. The artwork is of famous Oklahomans as well as Native American Indian art. This is the first state Capitol I've been to w/ an active oil derrick on the premises.

My husband and I visited the capital building on our cross country trip. The capital was nice, if difficult to get to. The government office are all around it and the roads circling the buildings are somewhat confusing.

Entering this building and thinking about the history that has been carried inside the walls is amazing. Be sure to arrange for a free guide to enhance the value of the walk-through!

I've been to a couple of dozen state capitol buildings around the country. This one, though, is the only one with an oil well in the parking lot. Welcome to Oklahoma City. The capitol offers quite a welcome to visitors. This building has an interesting history. It was built in the 1910s, but the state didn't have the money to... More

There is a lot of construction going on so we had to hunt for a way inside. Although parking is free, parking around the building is limited to personnel so we had to also hunt for parking so there was a good deal of walking just to get inside the building. Which was tiring for a member of our group... More

Though I don't travel to specifically visit state capitol buildings, I do go when we are near one. This building and its grounds are very nice. It was interesting to see the old oil well in the front of the building. We first went to the visitor center/gift store. It is here where you can get a tour. We were... More

Very friendly people at the visitor's center, a good and interesting tour of the Capitol with some fine little facts not always available to non-locals.

I enjoy going through the Capitol building, seeing the changes that are taking place as the renovation continues. There are two entrances, on the East or West sides.
