Our original visit was one year ago and we didn’t finish it. We came back again to find most of the floors have been cleared of exhibits or only partial exhibits due to ongoing reconstruction work. Skip this venue until the refurbishment is completed.

It is free to enter. Self guided tour provided. There is a nice museum on the 4th floor with information about Atlanta. I also liked walking around the outer grounds to see the sculptures.

The outlook of the building if beautiful, similar to other state capitol buildings, have a dome shape top, grand stair, pillars inside. But the Senate and House meeting place is not opened, we just can see it through a tiny window on the doors.
There is museum on the top floor, showing not only the history, but also the natural things about GA.

Really enjoyed my visit. 4 floors of different history and thought all was interesting. The 4th floor museum was really cool.

This is a free self guided tour of the capitol. There is a museum on the 4th floor with quite a bit of information about Atlanta and Georgia. There are statues outside to see and read a bit about who these people were and the part they played in history. I spent maybe 1-2 hours but if you are really into Civil War history you could easily spend longer.

After you go through security, pick up the brochure for the self-guided tour. If the person behind the desk doesn't volunteer the information, ask how to recognize the original doorknobs that are still in the building. It makes for a fun hunt. The Georgia Hall of Fame is on the second and third floors and is composed of busts of famous Georgians. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's portrait is separate and has more info about him than the stands for the busts have about their people. The fourth floor has the museum, where you'll learn about all of the different symbols of the state and about the native peoples of the area.The building does not focus on history quite as much as it does people. There are wonderful staircases to photograph. The rotunda isn't as lovely as the dome is on the outside.

This is a stunning building. The architecture is great. We took a self-guided tour, and truly enjoyed every nook and cranny of the building.

A beautiful building, simple, yet, elegant. You tour the building on your own. There are brochures at the security desk you can pick up to help guide you through the building. You will have to go through security to enter the building, so make sure to have a photo ID with you. For those of you who will need the handicap entrance it's located on the the Mitchell Street Southwest side of the building, and they have a couple of electric scooters and wheel chairs you may use to get around.
The top floor of the building has lots of exhibits on the state Georgia and also on how the government works.
There is no street parking available near the building, but there are a couple of parking lots near by.

As the center of Georgia state government, the Capitol building is interesting to tour. It is grand in stature, though not ornately decorated because it was built on a low-cost budget following the civil war. Individuals can walk through the halls of the building after passing through the security screening (photo id required!). The top floor includes display cases with artifacts related to the natural history and political history of Georgia. I give this a 4-star rating rather than 5 because I feel the displays should be updated to better reflect the current contributions of women and minorities in Georgia government.
