Unfortunately were were passing through briefly but made a point to side track our drive and visit the Wyoming State Capitol. It was a clear sunny September day, which offered great photos. Not very busy and easy access to a beautiful state capitol.

Coming from larger states "back East" this relatively small state capitol building offers amazing access to the visitor - no guards, no metal detectors, no x-ray machines, etc. We just strolled up the front steps and in the door and could have wandered directly into the governor's office. The architecture and sculpture was very nice - particularly in the rotunda... More

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
