Nice place, tour leaves every hour.. Kind of loud in the all stone interior and a bit hard to hear the tour guide.. Is free and close to the US mint and other attractions in walking distance..

Golden on the inside its more than a pretty dome! History of Colorado comes alive. View murals, painting that help to build understanding of Colorado history.

I really enjoyed the 10am tour on a Monday morning (a day when few attractions are open). Our enthusiastic guide took us to many corners of the Capitol, offering good anecdotes and facts along the way. I especially liked the (non)murals in the lobby. I've seen several more stunning state capitols, but if you like local history, this one's worth... More

We were disappointed all the way around. Paid for a BC (biblically correct) tour which was a total letdown. Our tour guide sadly lacked any significant information. (But that is for another review.) The Capitol has been under construction ever since we moved here 3 years ago which seems to be on par with the rest of this state's construction... More

We decided to take the state capitol free tour and are we glad we did. They were working on the dome, but the guide was so great and full of facts and figures, we hardly missed not seeing the dome in its full splendor. We were very impressed by the story of the rose colored marble and of the state... More

I was in Denver for business, but I had about half a day to sight see before my flight left, and I am glad I chose the State Capitol building because it was absolutely beautiful. First of all, I really liked that they give free tours approximately every hour, and that the tour guides are actually so knowledgeable. Our guide... More

If you are in town, stop by. The atrium is pretty cool and it is very historical inside. But if you can, wait until they are finished repairing the dome! That's a really fun tour! Getting up there is pretty cool. It also looks nicer from the outside. Anyway, the tours are great. Yes, there are homeless folks in the... More

The Colorado State Capitol is not especially distinguished, but it's worth a visit. It's a beautiful building on pretty limited grounds. I very much enjoyed the free tour led by a very knowledgeable guide, Rose. There's an interesting museum with information about the history of the building tucked between the third floor and the dome.

I think I may have hit this capitol at the wrong time - the dome is currently covered as it is undergoing renovations. It made taking decent photos a bit of a challenge. And, yes, there are some homeless folks hanging around the grounds. Nonetheless, I had a fantastic tour here. They're given on the hour and I was lucky... More
