The building is really nice and we enjoyed the statues around it. This state capital is one of the few with a gold dome and it is beautiful. Plus the little town itself with the historic buildings is gorgeous.

If you are keen on state history it is a good place to start to see all the yeas the state has been in session and some of the people who served terms and just the building itself is awesome.

This capital building is small, lets face it Wyoming isn't that populous. The architecture is old west and the people are friendly. There even is a buffalo out front.

First of all I would like to say that no trip to the American West or Midwest for that matter is complete without a trip to the Wyoming State Capitol. I got this crazy vibe when I first entered the door. It gives you that colonial American Colony feeling because you can walk right into the Governor's office without hesitation.... More

We were lucky enough to visit the state capital before it closed for renovations. Although all the offices have been moved to other locations and the building was empty we found the empty building thoroughly intoxicating (if you enjoy old buildings). We were told that it would be closed for the next three years for renovations. But we were told... More

The state capitol of Wyoming was just closed for 3 years for renovation. There is the State Museum to the southeast from the Capitol in the state building.

You can tell from the outside and the inside that this building is old and it is authentic looking! As soon as you walk in its colorful with merals on the wall and statues. Its the Capitol Building of Wyoming so it's the best by default!

Wyoming has SO much history and a LOT of it started here or was determined by the political activities in this building. It is a beautiful structure worthy of an hour or two visit.

Loved visiting the Wyoming Capitol Building on a recent stopover in Cheyenne. The building is beautiful and historic. Sadly, they are going to completely remodel it. I'd love to see it again in the coming years.

We like to see capital buildings, so when we were passing through Cheyenne, we stopped by to visit. We have a 37 foot motorhome and the streets were easy to navigate and there was parking, on the street, near the building that was free. In the building, we were able to walk around and see the building. The only disappointment... More
