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.

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...

I have always seen the top of the dome of the state capitol when I would visit Little Rock in the past, but never made it to the building until September, 2016. My wife and I drove out to its ideal location on a Sunday afternoon after church. There were actually plenty of parking spaces available which is a good... More

A very opulent building, a lot of white marble everywhere. It was not in session so we had a free run of the place.

I enjoyed walking the grounds of the Capital of Arkansas. It had several statures of Veterans honored for bravery.

The grounds are impressive and the building is aw inspiring. If you are in Little Rock make the effort to visit and you will have great photo op moments.

We missed the guided tour as one doesn't occur at noon. The self guided tour is ok, but there is a lack of history about the various branches that meet here. It was disappointing that the customer service agents did not know the meaning of their state flag and seal. There is not much history displayed here, only a few... More

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...
