No entry fee and a free tram most to 5he door from the train station. Lots of seating for the weary and informative videos to watch. Guides available at no cost. A laid back approach and very successful it was. Beautiful decor and art work. Allow plenty of time and remember you have to go through security on entering the... More

Walk up the steps to take in the city and mountains. Great at sunset....and be sure to get a pic by the plaque that designates why everyone refers to 5280....five thousand plus ABOVE sea level.

We did not have the time to do a tour, but the building is a very attractive one and it is worth a quick stop or even a drive by. We did do what many tourist do and marched up to step #13 which is one mile above sea level. Will return to do the tour as we heard from... More

Quirky State Capitol Building with too many lobbyists running the people's business. Not very strong leadership from either party, only looking out for themselves.

This building is a monumental and unique piece of architecture. If you are nearby you should pop in and see it emerging from distance.

A great guided tour through the beautiful Capitol building as well as the history of Colorado. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and detailed. The best part was definitely the view from the top with the mountains in the background. All of this for free. Fully recommended.

Went on a recommendation from a local and was not disappointed. Joined a tour after wandering a bit and thorough enjoyed the length (about 1 1/2 hour) and tour guide. Check out the quilt of Denver's history, the hundreds of stained glass windows (all the orginal sponsors are there!) and of course the gorgeous view from the peak (tour only).

Nice renovated capital. Take a tour and learn about its history. Go find the "mile high" makers, a fun story!
