The Capitol Building in Denver is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. This was definitely worth the site seeing stop. Plus the geographical marker is on the steps! Great photo ops too.

We took a tour of the Capitol and it was interesting. As someone who enjoys this sort of thing, I had no complaints. A few of my friends got a little bored but there were great photo ops at the top of the dome.

Once past the metal detectors at the public entrances, the Capitol is very accessible. There are guided tours of the building and of the Capitol dome running throughout the day. There are historical nik-naks around every corner, from paintings of governors of the past 60 years to hidden busts and plaques. And unless you come during opening day or a... More

The Capitol is a beautiful building. Security was easy to get through. The staff at the visitor's table was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have time to stay for an official tour, but I'll go back when I have time so I can go up the newly opened dome.

The tour of the Colorado State Capitol in downtown Denver is worth the trip. No charge. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a variety of interesting facts about both the building and area.

The building is clean and beautiful. The general tour is about 45 minutes and I had it by myself because nobody else showed up. At the end of tour, I was sent it to the museum and that is also the place for the dome tour. The dome tour is a must-have! You are allowed to walk around and see... More

We had a private tour for 3 as no one else had signed up (9:15 am on a Monday morning). The steps weren't bad at all. They are still working on places inside the building but the dome is done. Our guide told us the crew went from Denver to the nation's Capital and are now working on that dome.... More
