The State Capitol was built between 1884 and 1889 and was designed to be similar to the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. The dome is covered with gold that was mined in north Ga in the Dahlonega area.

Guided tours are given weekdays at 10, 11, 1 and 2 o'clock. If you visit when the Legislature is not in session you can practically have the whole building to yourself.

There is also a museum of notable flora, fauna, minerals, etc. of Georgia all around the 4th floor.
