A Must See

Strongly recommend this guided tour. The value of the heritage and history of Colorado is well documented. Displays in Brown's Attic are a must.

Toured the state capitol building and the highlight was walking up to the dome. Awesome views of the Rockies and the Denver skyline.

Third or forth step from the top is the mile high marker. Great views of the city and mountains. A must see on you visit.

We went to the Colorado State Capitol in Denver with family just to check out the building. Once inside, we found out that there would be a free tour in 5 minutes, so we decided we couldn't pass up the opportunity. The docent was extremely knowledgeable and took us through each floor of the building pointing out interesting facts and... More

Classic Old State Capitol Building. One of the steps is the marker for Denver at 1 mile high from sea level. Great Architecture and political history inside.

Beautiful building inside! Easy to walk to from the Sheraton where we stayed. There is a tour offered but we walked around on our own. Make sure you take a picture on the 13th step outside which is exactly one mile above sea level.

We live in Austin and take visitors to our Capitol building quite frequently. I must say that the Capitol building in Denver is much nicer on the interior. The quality of the finishing is worth seeing for yourself. Be sure to go all the way to the top to "Brown's Attic" and get your picture on the mile high 13th... More

I took a guided tour of the capitol. The guide was knowledgable about the building. The view from the top is fantastic. the Rockies were on display. Be prepared to climb some stairs.
