Nice to see.

We walked around the capital and then inside for a quick look. It was very nice and we enjoyed seeing it. Not a lot to see but had a good time.

If you follow that TV series, you know how Wyoming started. And true to its wild west roots, the capitol reminds you of a cowtown's interpretation of a Victorian palace. Arcihetecture of yesteryear, lovingly preserved by the state of Wyoming. The only complaint is that not much of it is really accessible to the public.

We arrived at the capitol building on a nice sunny day and started taking pictures. We were expecting that it would be closed for a scheduled renovation, but people were walking up the steps and going inside. Much to our surprise the renovation had been delayed and the building was open for self tours. They have a very nice brochure... More

This is a beautiful capitol building. We just went in and walked around on our own. Too bad they're going to shut it down at the end of this month for some long renovations so if you can, get there before the end of August! I think it's especially meaningful that they have a statue of the country's first woman... More

While in Cheyenne, I came upon the Capitol building. I had a few moments, so I simply went in and had no difficulty in finding my way to the main lobby under the dome. I looked around on my own for a bit, but then a very friendly state trooper started talking to me and telling me some of the... More

It was good to see how American Democracy operates and to learn a little bit of history about Wyoming and Cheyenne,

We made a quick stop to the outside only, as we arrived outside of the hours the building was open. There were some nice photo opportunities, as the area wasn't too busy.

The gold dome is classy and makes the building stand out. Nice sculptures, green space, and landscaping around the building. Beautiful woodwork inside.

Beautiful grounds and building. They have just started renovating the building, though. I understand that later this year the building will be closed to the public for restoration.

Most state capitals place a large expense of the building. After all, the politicians need marble. I sound so sardonic at this statement. But I feel this is the truth. It is a beautiful building with marble and landscaping.
