  • I was in the neighborhood, for lunch at the "Two Sister's Kitchen" (recommended) when I stopped to see the capital grounds. It's very impressive from what I could see from the outside. They were having a GMO protest on the steps on the capital, which was entertaining on its own. The entire grounds and the area around it is beautiful with rich history. I would recommend anyone who does visit to get the guided tour though.Your review helps others learn about great local businesses.
  • Love that you can do a free self-guided tour. Historical place and nice architecture.
  • Though undergoing renovations when I visited, the building is still very impressive.
  • One of the most beautiful state capitols in the USA. It is well worth the tour. Plus it is free! Also I had no problems with crime. Plenty of capitol security everywhere. Enjoy!
  • 2 Sisters is off the chain; and the grounds are visually brilliant. Too bad Feb. 2017 is the 4th anniversary of the MS Legislature passing the 13a to the US Constitution freeing the slaves; and the halls and grounds are littered with homages to the long line of overt racists that "served the people." You can decide which were served.
