Visitors can tour this government building that sits on a knoll, overlooking downtown to the east and the Arkansas river to the north, and bears a striking resemblance to the U.S. Capitol building.

The AR state capitol is beautiful, modeled after the United States capitol in Washington, D.C. One of our favorite times to go there is when it's decorated for Christmas. It's magical.

Located in the lower level of the Capitol it is a great bargain for a hearty cafeteria style lunch, fresh prepackaed chef or caesar salads or in the morning breakfast sandwiches or continental choices. It closes at 2PM.

The building is impressive. Unfortunately many of the rooms closed. Some due to reconstruction, others I don’t know. Not much see actually. I visited in a Sunday. I assume it’s better to visit during the week.

The building is quite impressive on its own, and the tour guide did a great job of telling the history of the building and its use. It's rather plainly decorated compared with many other state capitols, but that's part of the story. It was a...More
