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.

Join us for our new programming series Capitol History Highlights, sponsored by the Georgia Humanities. This project is funded through appropriations made by the Georgia General Assembly.

Important Announcements:

All visitors aged 18 and older must show photo identification (teachers strongly encouraged to bring driver’s licenses) to enter the Capitol.

The Georgia Capitol Museum accepts new volunteers April 1st through December 1st. Please see our volunteer flyer and email gacapitoltours@uga.edu for more information.
