Nice iconic landmark for the city of Denver, the Capital Building sits on the highest point in Denver. We left the car at the hotel, took the free shuttle bus along 16th street, got off at the Civic Center and walked 10 minutes to the Capital Building. The dome walk is a 99-step climb to the interior observation area which... More

Beautiful Capitol building and Alpine grounds. Near downtown, right next to other government building and parks.

It is good to know Denver is up there. The stairs are not gigantic, but it symbolizes the hight city. Parking is a bit hassle near the Capitol. You can park a bit far and take some walk. The view from the Capitol isn't bad at all.

Interesting to visit, but recommend not during legislative activity unless interested in process with number of people around and some areas not accessible during this time. A good historical site to see in Downtown Denver.

Although I didn't plan on seeing the Capitol Building during my trip to Denver for the AFC Championship Game, it's proximity to various bars and restaurants meant that I happened upon it. Very nice lighting at night!

Well they don't call Denver "The Mile High City" for nothing! Of course this is a must!!! Stand on the 12th step of The Colorado State Capital and you at exactly One Mile high above sea level!! Check that off your bucket list!!

This is a beautiful building. We went on a tour and found it very informative. The dome is stunning and the views grand--the whole front range is before you. The museum at the top is interesting. It was a fun few hours.

We were just passing through the area to drop off our rental car. The state capitol is quite an impressive building but the homeless...my god. Literally around the corner. That is why I chose to write this review. I gave this category a four because, to be fair, I didn't want to negatively impact the state capitol and everything else... More

My hubby and I were visiting friends in Denver who were both working during the day on NYE so we decided to walk to the Capitol building and check out a free tour. Upon arrival the nicest gentleman asked us what our interests were and gave us all kinds of suggestions of things we would enjoy around the city, along... More

If you're in Denver, stop by the Colorado State Capitol. It's FREE and absolutely stunning. Go up to the Annex and do the dome tour - you can see the beautiful Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak in the distance. The Annex Museum is cute and has a replica of the Capitol building. And don't forget to find the step that... More
