We explored the capitol and it was very nice. The brass doors are huge and the murals are a worth see. Several other rooms were closed off for repairs. The staff were very nice and they answered lots of questions. Parking is a nightmare.

There were engagement photos being done on the garden grounds on a Sunday. Nice touch that AR people are proud of their state reps, & tend the grounds so elegantly

Holiday lights are beautiful. Springtime also great flowers and grounds are very pretty. The inside is very informative about the history.

The Capitol of Arkansas is a smaller version of the Capitol in Washington. It has a long and storied history, but is well maintained. Parking in the area is limited, but it is worth a short walk to visit.

This state capitol is similar to others in our nation, but seems to incorporate a lot more marble into it.

If you're in Little Rock, it's hard to miss the capitol building. The architecture is beautiful, and the monuments outside are well-crafted and interesting to see. I should include a note: there are a few confederate monuments on the grounds, which I'm sure some want...More

We enjoyed the opportunity to tour and visit the building. The experience was better than average. The tour was nice. The vault feature on the tour was a pleasant surprise and unique from any of the other tours we have completed.

There is a parking garage next door. You must ask the museum for a parking voucher.
