Then they have a section for the history from the 1800s to the 1900s. Was pretty interesting and a must do if you're into capitol buildings. One negative... More

The original Capitol building is now a free form museum. Tours occur at 10 AM, but its very well planned and easy to just stroll thru all the floors. The USS Arizona exhibit is a must see.

My parents visit all the state capitols and were blown away by Arizona's. At the time, all of the china and silver from the ship, Arizona had been collected from being dispersed to other ships and was on display. That is typical. Add to your to do list!

This is a fascinating place to visit even if you aren't an AZ native. There are so many original items to see. The first thing that caught my eye were the old fashioned tile floors that had such a shine that you could see your reflection. The park in front of the building is beautifully landscaped and is also full... More

The Arizona State Capital Museum is basically the former historic Capital building that has been converted into a Museum. The new buildings are now next door. The museum has become the repository of well prepared self guided tour information for those who are interested in the development of Arizona as a state. A map of the floors is available when...
