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.

If visiting different state capitol buildings is your thing, this will be right up your alley. What a fantastic historical building. Just amazing. The 24-carat gold dome is spectacular. I was very lucky to be there on a perfectly clear day. Just gorgeous! What an incredible place to visit. And even better, I was there on a weekend, so there... More

Great historical place with interesting texts in the signs around the building: most of them are from a century ago and they provide a different view from today´s version of History. Free and interesting to see the polititians walking around.

Well worth a visit, there is a very good museum on the top floor which includes political and other history of Georgia. It was particularly interesting to read about the historic (and not so historic) corruption and graft. The politicians were not in session but you could access the chambers. No charge and it is a self-guided tour (unless you... More

The wecurity guard was polite,,friendly, and nice. We took a quick tour of the first floor. The cuppola is beautiful. We only spent about 30 minutes there. You could definitely take more time...around 1.5 hours.

It is a beautiful building. It is a shame it is wasted on politics and politicians. Seems like we should reserve this building for school children and put the politicians in their schools for some very needful education. Seems like a much better use of the space.

Things which may be helpful: 1) Atlanta traffic is famous for a reason, and parking is a problem once you get to the Capitol; 2) There are a couple of public lots for a flat fee of $10 near the building; 3) The website talks about tours at 11:00 but we found out that they only operate tours for groups...
