Welcome to a virtual tour of the Arizona Capitol Museum. Beginning at the main entrance of the Arizona Capitol Museum's historic Greek Revival exterior and continuing through each exhibit to the fourth floor where life size figures from Arizona's past reside, this virtual tour attempts to capture the basic elements of the museum. Also included in this virtual tour are Arizona's Great Seal, a 17-foot tall Greek goddess atop a copper dome, exhibits explaining Arizona's history, water rights, government structure and process, and statehood. The Arizona Capitol Museum also has many traveling exhibits which are not included in this virtual tour. Visit the majestic Arizona Capitol Museum, the building with the giant copper dome, to really experience the history of Arizona.
