Nice stop for all ages.

My son insisted on visiting and it turned out to be a nice stop. Interesting history and architecture. We did the hike to the dome and had beautiful views of the city.

A guided tour of the Capitol building was a must when visiting, and the history of the place was well explained.

The tours at the Capitol are given every half hour. A tour guide will talk and walk you through this magnificent bit of history. Rose marble and other local stones are used throughout the building. Stairways sweep you up to all the different levels. My favourite was where all the portraits of past and present presidents were hung. There is... More

Beautiful building, immaculately maintained. The surrounding area is spotlessly clean. Plenty of open vistas, so you can capture some iconic images.

What a neat place to visit and get a tour of...climb to the top of this capital to enjoy the vistas and mountain views...bring along your oxygen as the air is thin after the stairs!

I'd been to Denver many times, but had never been able to go to the Capitol. I'm glad I finally went. The building, while under construction when I was there, is absolutely stunning. Try to get in on e a free tour because the guide explains a lot about the building and its contents and gives some surprising facts about... More

On visiting downtown Denver with a little bit of time to kill, I went into the capitol. Aside from tours, the public can enter free of charge and walk around the building. Aside from the architecture and history, you can climb the stairs up to the dome and the dome has a balcony that allows 360 degree views of Denver... More

We learned interesting anecdotes about Denver and Colorado history. The design and construction of the building was fascinating. Be sure to tour the dome and Mr. Brown's attic.

Well worth a visit. The interior is wonderful and the view for outside the dome at the top is awesome. Can't believe they don't charge you - well worth an hour of your time.

It was a clean building and part of it was under renovation when I was there. Other than the dome exterior is gold, it is pretty much very similar to the other capitol buildings.
