Gorgeous building

I took a self-guided tour in the morning and enjoyed seeing the architecture and various rooms. Also walked the grounds outside.

The grounds of the capital are more interesting then the interior of the Capital building. Monuments of all Medal Of Honor Recipients from the state ate listed. Statues of the Arkansas Children integrating the first school are proudly looking at the state house. Other public art on the grounds are worth the trip,

We've had occasion to visit a number of state capitol buildings around our nation, but none compare with Arkansas's seat of government! Oh, yes - lots of capital buildings have beautiful marble stairways and columns, but NO OTHER STATE CAPITAL invites guests to HOLD A MILLION DOLLARS! It has been a tradition in Arkansas for the State's Treasurer to hold... More

We had a guided tour of the Capitol! The lady did an amazing job! We learned about how the place was built pretty much to every detail! We also got to go to the treasure room and hold $4,000!!

Start at the corner of Main Street and Capitol Avenue (between Fourth and Sixth Streets) and drive west. As you traverse the several downtown blocks along the way, look straight ahead of you and in moments, the dome of the Arkansas Capitol building will appear on the horizon, and within a minute or two, you will be at the curb...

We enjoyed our self-guided tour do the Arkansas state capitol building and grounds. The staff were all very friendly, and pretty much the entire building was open to tourists.

We asked for a guided tour of the capitol building. It is a very impressive building - just beautiful. Our wonderful guide told us that you can also do a self-guided tour, and that all of the information she provided us is included in the self-guided tour. Still, we always like having a real person to guide us along and... More

We were passing through Little Rock on an errand and decided to stop and see the State Capitol. The Arkansas State Capitol is a mini replica of the capitol in Washington D.C. This particular Saturday there was a Boy Scout event being carried on inside and on the grounds. We entered below through the tunnel and passed through what looked... More

We tried to visit during a holiday weekend and the capitol was closed. The ground are beautiful and there are several statues and monuments on the grounds. Worth a visit to see another state capital.
