The large rotunda area features pictures of the state's governors. While in the rotunda, look up at the dome for a magnificent view. One fascinating thing about this building is that it is asymmetrical. On each side of the rotunda are identical staircases surrounded by murals leading up to the Senate and House Chambers respectively. The governor's office is on the second floor and may also be viewed.
On the capitol grounds are monuments dedicated to Arkansas natives killed in Vietnam, law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, and a nice rose garden. The brass doors at the front entrance are 10 feet tall and 4 feet thick. They were bought from Tiffany's of New York. The capitol building is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm and Sundays from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.

Since the capitol resembles the U.S. Capitol, it was featured in several movies. In the 1985 movie "Under Siege," it was blown up by terrorists. Then it was attacked by the Soviet Union in the 1986 movie "Amerika."
