Great photo op

It was closed so I did not go inside but wow those shiny brass doors - and just the entire grand scene was a positive experience! Go by there and see it.

We had the opportunity to see the capitol with the Christmas decorations on display, which really complement the white marble interior of this classic building. I was surprised by just how beautiful the capitol was once I was standing in front of it. We did a tour, which we do at every capitol building we visit. Our tour guide was... More

We have made it a point to visit state capitol buildings since we live a half mile from one. This one did not disappoint. Beautiful features and construction. We were there on choir day not long before Christmas so did not get a tour, but the security guard was a wealth of information and we did the self guided tour.... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Capitol. We did not do an organized tour, but self-guided. All of the people who worked there were so welcoming and friendly and happy to visit and educate you. We really enjoyed the hospitality and history of the building!

This is a great place to visit with your camera! The grounds are very beautiful in the summer and spring. There are a lot of opportunities to snap a really good photo. The inside is very nice also. Only one drawback and that would be the parking.

Did a self-guided tour of this architecturally beautiful building. The skylights soften the marble and limestone making the building even more attractive. Don't miss visiting the Treasurer's office where you can hold over $300,000 in your hands and the State Land Commissioner's office to see the original plats of the state. This is the first state capitol I have seen... More

It's being renovated but you can still see a lot. It's not the biggest Capitol Building but it's pretty spectacular. We wandered around for about 30 minutes and felt we'd seen it all. Then we found the Sec. of State's office where they have original documents of The Louisiana Purchase, which brought Arkansas into the United States. Very cool.

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.
