  • This Capitol should be visited to appreciate the full beauty of the place. The views from the steps are breathtaking too.  more »
  • I have visited many Capitol buildings and this fits right in with the bunch. We actually went twice (missed the tour the first time) and did it self-guided then once with the tour guide. Recommend the...  more »

  • On our way to Florida i wanted to stop and visit the Alabama Capital and surrounding buildings. What a beautiful area, so well maintained and clean. Possibly one of the nicest and striking architecture I've seen in a government area. Loved the photo opps and it was a Sunday so I had the place to myself. Good job Alabama!
  • Beautiful historic building with nice surrounding area. A long boulevard leads to the quite majestic capitol. You can find some information regarding the Civil Rights Movement's March from Selma to Montgomery. Very interesting as we were driving from Selma to Montgomery on the National Historic Trail. We saw the Alabama Secretary of State leaving the capitol building. Unfortunately the interior could not be visited in the late afternoon.
  • If you are into REAL HISTORY, this is a must see along with the 1st Confederate White House across the street. Remember people were much smaller in the Mid 1800's. WELL worth a visit. Very nice people. It is also a functioning capital.
  • Hard to find the right door but it can happen. People are very nice,cool things ro see and learn. If you find the entry.
  • Beautiful grounds, but the building is pretty bland as far as capitol buildings go. Only way to see inside it is on a tour. Our guide today, Aroine, was incredible...not just a job to this guy...he knows his history and presented it well. Beautiful arch of state flags with local marble name stones.
