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.

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

We enjoyed our free tour of the capitol building. The architecture and the tour guides were wonderful. A highlight for us was the treasury room, where we were allowed to enter the vault and hold $360,000 in our hands. Super cool!

You never know exactly what you're going see at the State Capitol. But seeing democracy in action and sitting in the upper viewing areas to watch and listen to the senate or house deliberating is really a cool experience ~ from elementary age to adults.

The architecture is very pretty and the Capitol Park is nice as well. Probably worth a 1 - 2 hours visit, maybe a bit more if one is interested in lots of details about state's history (see exhibitions on the top floors).

Had a great tour and guide was very knowledgable, friendly and had a good sense of humor. Would recommend having enough time to visit the Treasury too...we did not. Parking is not good so be prepared.

When you drive into view of this beautiful historic building, you see nothing but what Arkansas represents....freedom, family and home. The grounds, the monuments the trees all represent the people of Arkansas with such grand order...The inside is more amazing, the tundra is an echo of all the many voices and those who have past through those copper doors at...
