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.
The main entrance of the Capitol, located on Washington Street, is closed for construction. Visitors may access the building at the Mitchell Street ground level entrance, or the M.L. King second floor entrance.
The 11:30 am guided tour will not be offered August 4-8, 2014. Visitors may take a self-guided tour of the Capitol during this time.
