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.

This is a beautiful state capital and a little history never hurts a person. This is directly down from the train station and great views the Train Station or Capital from the train station. This is right near the governers mansion as well. The ground make a good picnic stop before or after touring the capital. The dome is beautiful... More

This is an absolutely a beautiful building. Proportions to perfection. And then you enter to a most welcoming Staff that are some of the friendliest I've encountered. No security hurdles to endure at this capitol. I particularly like the grand staircase a woodworkers dream job.

This was our first visit to the State Capitol. We went to look for the pictures of a former Speaker of the House, dating back to the early 1900's. He is a part of our family tree and we found the pictures mounted on the wall on the third floor of this very impressive building. We asked about getting copies... More

We've been on a road trip traveling the west but out of all the Capitol Buildings we've toured, this was our favorite. From the moment you walk through the massive doors, you feel comfortable here. Nothing was roped off, we were welcome to tour the entire building. Their only request is that you turn off your phones and be quiet.... More

Beautiful building, very friendly and helpful staff, interesting history. Leslie Arnett in governor Matt Mead's office was especially gracious and helpful. Find the upside down banister post and the representative's two photos with a red tie (in a black and white photo montage). Marvel at how little governing people actually need.

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...
