Cool old building

Got to stand at 1mile high on the steps. Very cool looking at the arcitecture and dome. Heads up that this summer they are renovating some of the senate/assembly rooms.

The capital is a nice place to visit, it is a better place to drive pat and see the dome. The dome is gorgeous. It's like a shinny lid on the top of government.

To be honest we did not have time for the tour, but the building itself is very interesting to view. You are allowed to wander on your own. We stayed about 30 minutes and I think that is all you need. If I had the time I would have taken the tour.

We caught a tour at the Colorado State Capitol Building late in the day (it was slightly shortened because it was the last or next to last tour). The guide was very informative and among other things, showed us different rooms (some were under renovation so we couldn't enter), the presidential portraits, talked about the materials used to build the...

The senate and house chambers were undergoing major remodeling so we could not even go into the Gallery areas. Our docent was very talkative, but she really was informing us only about the legislative process in Colorado, and some semi-famous people in the stained glass windows. We would have enjoyed more info on the history of the building. Cafeteria was... More

Free tour provided by the State of Colorado. Tours run regularly and if you miss one by a few minutes like I did, you can hop on one. The tour is relatively brief, but informative and you might meet an elected representative. Personally, the best part is walking up the many stairs and tight passageway to the dome of the... More

If you're in Denver, a visit of the state capitol can provide a nice 1-2 hour tour. And, the view from the steps is very nice.

we went on a very informative tour of the Colorado state capital. Our tour guide was interesting and we enjoyed seeing the city from the top of the building.

Take the (free) tour. Very knowledgeable guides show you around this magnificent building, giving a good insight into how the state capital works. Then climb to the top and see the splendid view over Denver, to the Rockies.
