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.

Architecturally interesting, beautifully preserved, and educationally valuable. Parallel parking is available along the capitol complex roads. Ground floor entries for visitors on the north or south sides. Guided tours are available on weekdays on the hour. The art glass domes above the House and Senate chambers are must see features. Self-guided tour brochures are available at the reception desk.

We enjoyed exploring the state capitol building on a Sunday afternoon in November. It is a beautiful building! Although some of the areas were not open, we enjoyed the quiet visit. It is definitely worth your time.

Whenever we visit a state we try to see the capitol. This is a gorgeous building. The dome can be seen from the highway but get off the road so you can also see the beautiful grounds. It's a very striking building and one of the best we've seen.

Visited the outside only on a Sunday afternoon, and downtown was absolutely deserted. Enjoyed a nice walk around the grounds taking in all the sculpture and history.

My wife's bucket list includes visiting all 50 state capitol buildings. This is #17 and is one of the top two "most friendly" on our list. The grounds are immaculate and the building, in spite of the repair on the facades presently underway, is beautiful. Displays throughout the building are clear and informative.

Beautiful building, just walked around at our own pace and visited the The Treasury, where we allowed to hold $350,000 in notes and had a photo taken. The young man who showed us around the Treasury was very knowledgeable and took time to us how the huge vault worked. Very interesting visit.

I always enjoy visiting the State Capitol. I don't always enjoy the issues which bring me there, however the State Capitol and the Grounds surrounding it are always impeccably maintained. Arkansas' State Capitol is actually a very beautiful building & the people of Arkansas have something to proud of in their Capitol.

The grounds and interior are very well kept. There are a lot of fascinating things going on at the state capitol. I recommend downloading, or at least viewing, the online resources and maps beforehand to give you an idea of what/where to go.

One of the most beautiful capitols we've visited! We've visited over half of the capitols and would rate in top three. Tour guide was excellent.

The Arkansas State Capitol is a wonderfuly designed building that brings the old and new together seamlessly. From the bronze doorways, marble floors and stairwells to the gorgeous chandiller hanging in the rotunda you will be visually delighted. Throughout the Capitol you will find a pictorial depiction of the history of Arkansas. If you visit during the Winter Holiday season... More
