The building of the Old Arizona State Capitol is great with much history. The grounds themselves are amazing with tributes to Police, Soldiers, Firefighters and Canines. Do not overlook this when visiting. We were very impressed!

Experience Arizona culture and history in the beautifully maintained Capitol building.. Its free - though donations are encouraged. The outside park is a memorial to those who died during many wars - its beautiful and thought-provoking.

The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is closed on state holidays. So it would NOT be open that day.
