Owner description: Patterned after the National Capitol, this has been the Capitol building for the state of Mississippi since 1903. Today it is major tourist attraction as well as the focus of Mississippi state government activities.

If your visiting Mississippi or live there your entire life, you will enjoy this tour thought the State's history. This is a beautiful restored building. The museum covers three floors of the building a is an interesting way to spend a couple if hours. There is a shorten tour suggestion if you don't have a lot if time. If you like history you will enjoy this visit.

Presuming you have some time during your day, this beautiful Capitol is best explored on the hour-plus tour that takes you through the history of the state's governors as well as all the building's history and architectural details. I learned a lot and enjoyed my visit.

Easy to walk around and tour the Capitol. The rotunda is beautiful as are the ceilings in the Senate and House rooms.

I came for a scheduled tour, as advertised on the State Capitol's website. Brenda gave me an outstanding personal tour of the capitol building. She is very knowledgable about Mississippi history and was a pleasure to learn from. She also recommended that I visited the Mississippi Governor's Mansion which was giving tours that morning as well and I had a great tour there as well. Overall, I can't wait to come back to Jackson, Mississippi!
