Monday - Friday 7:00am -5:00pm

Constructed between 1899 and 1915 on the former site of the state penitentiary, the Arkansas State Capitol is the vital heart of the state's government. Rich in history, craftsmanship and architectural distinction, the Neo-Classical structure won general praise for its elegant proportions. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, elected officials, legislators, committees and delegations carry on "the people's business" while thousands of visitors enjoy the Capitol's warm welcome. Permanent exhibits chart the history of the Capitol, while changing displays in the first-floor galleries highlight aspects of Arkansas history, art and popular culture. Portraits of past governors, Supreme Court Justices and legislators bring visitors "face to face" with the men and women who have shaped Arkansas. Guided tours are available on weekdays; reservations are advised. The Capitol s easily accessed from I-630. Visitor parking is available on Woodlane St. and in the parking lot at the corner of Woodlane and Capitol.
