The crowds here make this attraction sketchy. I like old style capitals, but something are better seen from afar.

I really enjoyed my recent visit to the Georgia State Capitol. The building is very conveniently-located, right next to mass transit in downtown Atlanta. During the legislative session, there's a lot of energy in the building, which also has a historical museum on the top floor, in between the viewing galleries. The 19th-century stonework is very impressive, as is the... More

Took some doing, bet we got the Tour. The Marble and gold is an awesome sight in the evening sunset, and is all you expect it to be reflecting our state history. The Georgia Capitol Museum is a public educational institution housed in the Capitol building under the administration of the Office of Secretary of State. It's open to the... More

Several statues of famous Georgians. The capital was closed when we visited, but the grounds were interesting to read about the famous Georgians.

This is our third “capital tour” (Hooray, only 47 to go!). I have to say for the size of Atlanta and the grandeur of the capital building, we were shocked there is not a guided tour. The other two capital buildings we’ve toured (Lincoln and Des Moines) had absolutely fabulous free tours. The building and grounds are majestic. There was... More

Nothing great! I didn't feel too safe walking in that area of town. Lots of homeless folks. Most of the courthouses and administration buildings in the area. Very busy part of town during the week.

If visiting different state capitol buildings is your thing, this will be right up your alley. What a fantastic historical building. Just amazing. The 24-carat gold dome is spectacular. I was very lucky to be there on a perfectly clear day. Just gorgeous! What an incredible place to visit. And even better, I was there on a weekend, so there... More

Great historical place with interesting texts in the signs around the building: most of them are from a century ago and they provide a different view from today´s version of History. Free and interesting to see the polititians walking around.
