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.

If you like anything about buildings this is a for sure place to check out!! It is a beautiful structure! If possible visit at Christmas. Decorated very nicely. It cost 2.2 million to build. Completed in 1915. Would cost approx. 350 million to build today!! Very extravagant.

The state capital of Arkansas is the only capital in America patterned after the US capital. Once inside, you will find a nice gift shop and historical displays. There is a restaurant which is reasonably priced. At the time of my visit, chamber galleries were being restored. Thus, some areas were closed due to construction. Staff members are friendly and...

Always enjoy visiting the Arkansas State Capitol. Senate was in session on a recent visit and always enjoy studying the government at work. Also enjoy the Capital grounds. This is for those who like history and architectural designs. The Capital has been utilized for some movies that depict the US Capital. A monument honoring the Little Rock Nine is located... More

We have tried to visit as many of the state capitols as possible. This one is well worth the visit. The Capitol is immaculate and filled with informative displays.

The Arkansas State Capitol is a sight to behold in downtown Little Rock. It's design is close to that of our Nation's Capitol...and it's almost equally as beautiful. Massive stone columns everywhere, HUGE BRASS entry doors and marble everywhere you look, is a fairly basic description of just a few things you'll see while here. The ceilings are high and... More

Well after we finally found a parking spot near the capitol building then we could enjoy it a bit! It doesn't have nearly the visitor space parking that several other capitols I've been to have and this is building number 11 for us! The inside of this building is absolutely stunning! They have a great free booklet that you can... More

There is a tribute of statues to the Little Rock Nine outside of the capitol. We liked seeing that better than the capitol itself. Nice pictures though.

The Arkansas State Capitol is very accessible, with the ability to walk around and visit your representatives' offices. At Christmas it is gorgeous, with a piano in the Rotunda that you can receive permission, ahead of time, to play. It is a wonderful place to visit with your wife after a date in Little Rock, in the evening when it... More

I went with overseas visitors in October 2015. It's the only state Capitol which is an exact replica of the one in Washington DC. It's a beautiful building inside as well as outside. The staff - including the on-duty policemen - were all very friendly and helpful. The Treasurer's Office has a gorgeous, elaborately decorated safe containing about $250,000. By... More
