Georgia Capitol Museum

The Georgia Capitol Museum seeks to preserve and interpret the history of the Georgia Capitol building, which was built to symbolize Georgia’s reemergence after the Civil War, and the events that have taken place within its walls. The Museum collects, maintains, and exhibits significant artifacts, including historic flags and works of art. Exhibition highlights include models of both Miss Freedom and the Capitol Dome, Governor’s artifacts and a replica of the Capitol time capsule. There are also numerous exhibits that feature Georgia’s natural resources, including dioramas that display the major climate regions of Georgia: mountains, piedmont, plain, swamp, and coast.
