This beautiful classical buildings houses the government of the U.S. state of Oklahoma. While most of the Greco-Roman architecture is made of white limestone and Oklahoma pink granite, the dome is made of steel, concrete and plaster. Sprawling over 100 acres the complex offers as much to see outside as it does inside. For instance, the Capitol building rises directly above the Oklahoma City Oil Field and it is the only capitol in the country with active oil rigs. Inside, the walls of the building are decorated with beautiful murals and often feature changing art exhibits inside the special Museum.
Surrounding the complex you will also find the State Capitol Park, the Oklahoma History Center, the Oklahoma Judicial Center, and the Oklahoma Governor's Mansion. On the north of the building you will find the Oklahoma Veterans Memorial. The area is also host to some excellent restaurants and bars.

Oklahoma could make their capital building so much more impressive if they removed all that empty space and parking around the building. Check out Philadelphia’s city hall and tell me that building would look better sitting in the middle of a parking lot. The building should have a road going around the building and have businesses and high rises directly across the street, just like in philly. They could build underground commuter and rapid transit leading straight out and through the city. Oklahoma could really remake itself into a leading global city if only they started with the capital. Can you imagine what I’m saying?
It could be such a beautiful place if it was cared for more. Much larger than it appears from 235 and actually pretty easy to get in and out despite the construction.
Beautiful rotunda with nice paintings and great lighting. The place is being renovated currently and for the next 4 years, according to our tour guide. The House and Senate chambers are fairly plain.
It was under construction, so all the art was put away. Nice tour guide though and lots to learn. I am sure it will be marvelous when they are done with the restoration. The dome that was added in 2002 is beautiful. Parking is free, which is a plus.
While there are better capitals throughout the US, this one is still pretty nice. Worth stopping by if you're in OKC.
