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.

Visited with my family. Fairly personal tour of legislative chambers, governor's meeting room, treasury (you can have your picture taken with a big stack of hundred dollar bills). Has the feel of what things were like before hyper-security and political correctness were the norm. Very enjoyable!

What an unexpected pleasure we had to be given a personal tour of this historic building even though we arrived 15 minutes after their last tour! Our guide was very interesting and well informed. An added bonus was getting to hold $400,000 when we were allowed in the vault in the treasury department. I highly recommend taking the time to... More

Traveled to L.R. with my mother and daughters in April. We loved exploring the beautiful architecture at the Capitol... and even had the chance to pop in on a legislative session! Truly a treasure!

I have been to several State Capitols, but I really enjoyed this one. Some many helpful people explaining the history of the capitol. The tours are great too. Nice gift shop with great souvenirs. And you can get your photo taken with $400,000 in the vault. Unfortunately, you have to leave the money there when you leave. Oh well. It... More

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!

Thank TxBrian
