  • Great place to visit - and it's free, with the exception of the ghost movie. I think the movie is only $3 but worth it. It was fun! This place is full of history! There's a security check at the door, so save yourself a walk back to your car and double check pockets and purses for items not allowed inside.
  • If you can only see 1 place in baton Rouge this is it. MUST SEE. Beautiful architecture in this place. FREE. Cool spiral stairway in the center looking up to a colorful stained glass dome. Beautiful building. Would definitely recommend to all. Very historical too.
  • Like the current state capitol, the old state capitol has a wonderful, knowledgeable staff and the museum is really nice. A lot of history to be seen inside here. Great location and a must-see for out of town visitors!
  • Took a day trip from New Orleans to check out the capital. The Old State Capital was one of our favorites. Really unique looking building with some excellent exhibits. Free self-guided tour. The rotunda and staircase alone are worth at least poking your head in. And the split room dedicated to Huey Long is really cleverly done.
  • I like the gothic motif. Good place to have a wedding.
