My wife and me where one day in Montgomery and we visited this monument. It's interseting but for us Europeans it wasn't very nice. It's not guided and you must try to find out yourself what everything means. For one houre it's okay. After that go as fast as you can to the Civil Rights memorial Center!!!!

Lot's of Alabama history in the place. History buffs would probably enjoy a visit. The facility is old, but very well kept.

We have been visiting our state capital since the 1950's as children. It is the most beautiful of any state capital we have seen and we have seen about 35 in all. My grandfather painted the inside of the dome in the early 50's, so we have special memories of it.

Worth seeing both the old old and new capital building. The staff and security personnel very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the way the history was displayed.

Probably the most beautiful State Capitol in the United States. Modeled after the nation's capitol building, absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Also has the added distinction of being the Capitol of a sovereign nation- the Confederate States of America.
