Really quick to see. Nice stop to stretch legs. Take a pic of General Lee before he is placed in storage. Super cool staircase. Otherwise, pretty standard capitals as they go.

The Alabama State Capitol is an impressive building that dominates the Montgomery skyline from the riverfront area. There are also a couple of interesting statues and memorials in the gardens surrounding the building. Worth a quick visit.

I find the Alabama State capitol to be one of the most interesting I have ever visited. The beautiful circular staircases are something to see. Lovely large artwork under the dome and stunning room painting. The wall is flat but appears to have a raised...More
