Capitol and Grounds Exhibit and Event Guidelines 02/04/2020 (593.61 KB) The Georgia State Capitol building is the State’s legislative center and an architecturally and historically significant facility located in downtown Atlanta. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. O.C.G.A. § 50-9-9 grants the Georgia Building Authority (GBA) the authority to establish rules and regulations to carry out the protection of the Capitol building property and its grounds and to protect against unreasonable disruptions of state employees in the performance of their official duties. Under this authority, GBA sets forth these guidelines to govern the temporary use of the public areas of the State Capitol building and grounds. The Board of Regents maintains the Georgia Capitol Museum located inside the Capitol and conducts tours of the Capitol. Permitted temporary uses of the public areas within the Capitol are conditioned upon acceptance and compliance with these guidelines and payment of applicable fees. A person who refuses to adhere to these conditions is subject to criminal penalties provided by law and to immediate removal from the Capitol building and grounds.
