My girlfriend and I visited the Capitol last week for the first time. They run tours every hour, so we decided to see what the place had to offer. We had a very a nice and informative guide, and we learned more than I can remember about the building and Colorado history. The highlight of the whole tour was going... More

The building itself is beautiful and worth seeing. I recommend taking the tour versus wandering the building alone for a couple reasons... Most importantly, you can only go up to the dome of you're with a guide, and you don't want to miss the views from there, they are AMAZING! (but be prepared to climb, there are no elevators to...

A great centerpiece in the City of Denver. Make sure to find the 5,280 feet above sea level sign (one mile high!) on the west steps, then climb to the rotunda for a panorama of the snowcapped peaks. It's a great building and worth the time.

This building in magnificent looking. If you climb to the 13 floor this marks exactly 1 mile above see level. Even just to admire from the street this is a neat building to visit. Plus, it opens you up to more architecture and sites to see in the area.

With its golden dome and columns the capitol building is beautiful from the outside. Although the meeting chambers which have been restored are quite beautiful, the public halls are fairly blah and not what I had expected for this building.

The Capitol building is beautiful inside and out. The inside artwork is wonderful. I attended a quilt show there last year that was terrific.. Old and new quilts with stories!! There is no fee for entry and no time limit or hurry once inside. Enjoy!!

No charge here. We got to stroll around at leisure and enjoyed the architecture, the beautiful staircase and some very interesting reading

This was awesome and they have free tours which make it that much better. They have three separate tours you can take.
