This is a beautiful 19th c building with lots of beautiful Georgia marble and the shining gold leaf dome which came from Dahlonega, GA which had the first U.S. gold rush. During the legislative session (January - March), it is abuzz with hearings, legislators, lobbyists and various constituency groups. There are two grand staircases, each leading to a different overlook... More

Have visited several times but love going at Christmas. The marble stairways are lined with poinsettias and the trees are from a Georgia farm. Most days there's local talent performing in the grand foyer-choral groups, choirs, high school bands etc. which have always been a special treat. You can visit the House of Representatives & the Senate chambers unless they... More

I was able to just walk inside and look around. The security staff was very friendly. They had a pamphlet to assist you in your self-guided tour.

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.
