It was open on Saturday because of Frontier days. It is free and worth seeing. Great artwork, building characteristics, history and beautiful sculptures. Plus if need to charge your cell phone in the rooms off the senate chambers there are nice comfy chairs and a power strip!

You can go inside of the Capitol but I just took picture of the outside. The Capitol building is a nod to the Capitol in Washington DC. Outside of the building are statues different important people and animals of Wyoming history.

I.m not sure what impressed me more: the actual Capitol building or the amazing statuary on the grounds! The statue of Chief Washakie in front is by far one of the most stunning and realistic representation of a Native American that I have seen. The detail is so real that I just had to (gently) touch the fringe on one... More

Brings home the wild west history of the town and it is located right near the centre and the "big boy" train.

We were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of this capitol. There's a free activity book for kids and it is easy to see the grounds. We were stuck inside during a thunderstorm, so the governor's administrative assistant invited us in to see the governor's office, a special treat for my children. The sculptures outside capture the western history.

This was a quick stop on the way through. I thought it was worth the visit. Nice looking building with easy parking. Very nice statues outside really made the visit (really what I pictured for Wyoming).

The interior is beautiful. This was another self guided tour but the booklet had other helpful information.

The Wyoming capitol building is unique in that it is just like it's state - practical. Other state capitols are ornate and expensively appointed. This one just gets the job done (not that there is anything wrong with that).

While we were at the State Capitol the State Treasurer took a photo of our family by a large bust of Abraham Lincoln. Then he gave us a quick tour of his office, including allowing my kids a chance to go into the vault. We were very impressed.
