Travelers talk about
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.

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.

This is one beautiful and impressive building. Don't forget to use your inside voice in the building - the place is massive with a lot of open areas and marble so sounds are magnified! Even though it was hot weather, we walked around the beautiful...More

On the tour we were told that this building was patterned from the Capital Building in D.C. Beautiful and large build. You can't miss it. You can see it from the Arkansas River.

The capitol of Arkansas is public friendly and has a great history. Visit the treasury and have your picture taken holding a half million dollars from the vault!
