State Capitol Tour
Overview State Capitol Tour
This four-story building served as both territorial capitol when completed in 1900 and as state capitol after statehood came in 1912. Kept in service until replaced by the newer state capitol (directly behind it) in 1974.
The capitol itself is now utilized exclusively as a museum, and serves over 60,000 visitors each year, including over 30,000 school children. Today the restored wings exhibit memorabilia from early Arizona as well as restored rooms of the governor, Senate, and secretary of state.
Arizona State Capitol Museum
There are also special exhibits about the USS Arizona and a wax figure of George Hunt, first governor of Arizona. More than 20 exhibits tell Arizona's story from territorial days to the present.
Built of tuff stone from Kirkland Junction and granite from the Salt River Mountains.
Park free at Wesley Bolin Plaza east of 17th Avenue and top off your day with a visit to the award winning museum store.
