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.

Important Announcements:

The Capitol will be closed November 24-25, 2016 in observance of Thanksgiving.

Guided tours are available for groups of 10 or more with a reservation. Groups of less than 10 may take a self-guided tour weekdays from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm with no reservation required.

Please read our revised Frequently Asked Questions page for answers about planning your Capitol tour. Teachers may use this page as a field trip guide.
