For over 120 years the Georgia Capitol has inspired Georgia’s citizens. Built to symbolize Georgia’s reemergence after the Civil War, the Capitol continues to be one of the most impressive buildings in the state. The Georgia Capitol Museum seeks to preserve and interpret the history of the Georgia Capitol building as well as the events that have taken place within its walls.
