I took a group of seniors in January and we were able to visit the museum, sit in on a session of the House of Representatives, and a session of the Senate. No large bags and you need permission to slip into the visitors gallery in both areas. I rode MARTA to the Georgia State station and walked 2-3 blocks... More

The Georgia State Capitol compares quite favorably with the dozens of other capitols I've seen. The thing that impresses me most about it is the structure's golden dome. Atlanta's downtown skyline is pretty much like that of any other big city of the New South, being dominated by a rather nondescript collection of high rises. However, the glistening dome of... More

Nice building. I took some good pictures. But the sidewalk in that area isn't clean. You'll come across homeless people there. Just the signs of government not at its best.

The capitol building is absolutely lovely and the museum is very informative. Go in to the office on the ground floor to sign the register. The people working there and the front reception security are very nice and helpful.

Beautiful building with lots of history. Well done exhibits. Info desk staff was helpful and told us to go to Governor's office; we weren't sure as the door was closed. Cool tour of his office - staff was great and we got free peanuts. Even our teenage son liked it.

This state capitol is a beautiful classic structure topped with a dome sheathed in gold. The building is surrounded by lush landscaped grounds with large hardwoods that are home to several varieties of hawks.

If you are in Atlanta, you must visit the State Capitol. It has a museum on site and if you come during the legislative session you can watch the representatives at work. Sometimes they are filming movies and tv shows in the area, so keep your eyes open and who knows who you might see.

First of all, make sure you plan your trip between traffic hours. Park at the sidewalk and pay for four or three hours, that should be about $4. The actual visit at the Capitol is free. Try leave everything at the car, but bring your ID and your camera. You will need to pass a security check. The guard is... More

We visited the capitol as past of a merit badge requirement for our sons, and ended up getting a personal tour of the building with one of the staff members. Miss Tracy was wonderful. She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and was happy to answer all of our questions. We parted at the house chamber, but she encouraged us to... More
