If you are interested in the history of Georgia this is a must see. Located downtown Atlanta it is easy to reach, and the top floor has an interesting historic exhibition.

I'm surprised the ratings aren't higher for this building. It's a stunning capitol with an impressive dome, set in attractive gardens. You need to have your bags searched when you go in, so prepare for this. It's entirely walkable from Downtown and free to enter....More

The Capitol was huge with a lot of history to tell. The architecture was stunning. Most of the main meeting halls were open to the public. It is free to tour the Capitol. No gift shop and very limited concessions.

We were given a small map to assist our self guided tour, although there were a number of helpful staff throughout the building. You need identification in order to gain entry, something that we forgot on a previous trip, and therefore missed out. Judy in...More

As far as I am aware, it is closed at weekends. Normal hours are Mon - Fri 9am to 5pm. We also needed identification as well to get in, so don't forget to bring this with you.
