Tells the story of Wyoming's role in women's suffrage! She was the first woman justice of the peace in the nation, and Wyoming led the nation in women's suffrage. Not suffering!

As far as Cheyenne attractions go, this is one of the best. Like most state capitol buildings, it's free to visit, and most of the building is open for you to see. Throughout the interior is beautiful, intricate woodwork, along with some amazing stained glass.

As a photographer one of my favorite places to photograph is state capitol buildings, inside and out. This is a gorgeous building with great sculptures around the grounds. Without any special permission or permits, I was allowed to bring in my tripod and make photographs, which I did first thing in the morning. Everyone was very friendly.

This is a beautiful building. We spent about an hour on the self-guided tour, and enjoyed the architecture and plentiful old photos and Wyoming history exhibited. Definitely worth seeing in Cheyenne.

This building looks large on the outside but when you get in it seems much smaller. Having worked for the Illinois legislature I'm a fan of capitol building so we've been to many. This is a nice capitol building for a small state. Nothing too ornate, very understated. Unfortunately there are only self-guided tours so we wandered on our own... More

What a nice gold dome. Reminds me of my home state capitol. Walk though the front door and there is the governor's office. Real nice woodwork. Fun to walk around and go into both chambers. Very well preserved state capitol. Be sure to pick up the post cards showing the stages of the capitol to present day. Whether a visitor... More

I enjoyed the State Capitol through the eyes of our 9yo son who loved the statues, the steps and the gold dome. In a few short moments I was able to get some basic Wyoming history. It's worth a visit, if passing through the area.
