The Cathedral is lovely - and we enjoyed strolling through it - gorgeous stained glass windows, etc. We never expected to see such a gorgeous, huge cathedral in Montana!!!

Very nice old church with beautiful architecture. The church was open so they let you walk around to see the grounds and the sanctuary.

The last time we visited we were met by a docent who was extremely knowledgeable. The building is beautiful and a tribute to those who planned, funded and built it.

Nice church modeled after the Votive Church in Vienna. It's lovely, but not a must-see in my opinion. It's a quick, convenient tour, though if you are in downtown Helena. It's near the Original Governor's Mansion (which is fantastic!).

The cathedral is located walking distance from the Carolina Inn B&B we were staying Inn. The proprietor suggested we visit the Cathedral I'm glad she did. The is the most impressive house of worship I have visited. It contains massive marble columns, impressive wood work and more than 40 spectacular stained glass windows.

I was on a day tour of Helena and we visited the Cathedral. WOW! What a lovely place. I'm not Catholic so didn't know much about the meanings of things so I received an education on all things Catholic. I took lots of pics. Will figure out how to share someday. Want to visit when there is a musical performance... More

Worth a visit for the restful atmosphere and the numerous quality stained glass windows. A pleasant 10 minute stroll around will be enough. Lots of easy parking at the back.
