We've visited many state capitals but this is one of the most inviting. The state seal is in the ground at the front of the building. Behind the seal are statues of Chief Washakie (he played a key role in relations between WY's native tribes and the US Government) and Esther Hobart Morris (important for women's suffrage movement in WY...

This is a small, beautiful structure, with an extremely friendly staff. My husband chatted with the state trooper, on duty at the desk inside, at length & learned a great deal. The whole place is very 'user friendly'. We were able to park just outside the building. There is a very informative guide book which gives you the history of... More

This is a beautiful building both outside and inside. It is interesting to see the actual rooms where laws are debated and the staff is very friendly. Do bring a camera!

Prior to entering the Capitol, my family had a picnic lunch on the lawn. Kudos to the groundskeepers; the grass was gorgeous and there was plenty of shade. We entered the Capitol and decided against a guided tour (we have a two year old), and opted for self-guided on. After our tour, we let the two year old crawl around... More

This is a great stop! The building is beautiful and the people, very friendly. We did a self guided tour and loved everything about this stop during our cross country motorcycle trip. Wyoming is just a beautiful place!!

The building was closed for Sunday, but I took a lot of photos of the outside. The building is beautiful and I like the statues of both honoring the Native Americans and Women.

The Wyoming State Capital is in a beautiful building with a gold plated dome. We picked up a booklet at the visitors desk that we used to take a self guided tour with. The glossy booklet gave a description of the rooms, artwork and construction of the courthouse. While we were there a group of teens were getting a guided... More

Nice building and grounds. Several statues. The dome is really neat. We were impressed with how quiet the area is.

If you have time after a visit to the nearby Wyoming State Museum, walk down the block and enter the capitol building which is built in Renaissance Revival style. Unlike other government buildings, this one is totally open to the public and admission is free. (Check in at the front desk which also has lots of information about Wyoming.) You... More

We did a self-tour in a short amount of time, but really gained a feel for what the smallest state in the union has in the way of governance and simplicity. The comparison to the majesty--almost gaudiness--of U.S. Capitol is striking.
