What a beautiful Capital building with it's dome of Gold! Four floors of history and art will capture your attention. The Governors office is very forefront and present as you walk through the giant wood- carved doors. Many people greet you and give a brief history of the grounds. It is well worth the time to walk the halls and... More

Outside of our own Texas capital building, this is the only other one I have toured. Much smaller than Texas' it was still very interesting. As someone who enjoys history, I spent some time reading and looking at the pictures and markers. The few people we encountered were very nice and there was hardly a soul around. very peaceful. The... More

When I travel to a capitol city, I try to visit their Capitol Building. For the size of the population of the state, it's pretty big. A beautiful building with lots to see. I took the self guided tour, and was trying to figure out where the public entrance was. Just walk straight into the front doors, and you will... More

We just did a quick walking self tour. We asked at the desk and they tell you what areas you can tour. Open M-F 8 to 5. There is no admission fee, and only took us about 30 minutes or so. Evidently they do have guided tours, group tours and school tours, but you would need to check the website... More

I just thoroughly enjoyed my visit and I understand they will do renovation on it soon. So if you want to visit it, do not wait. I was able to take myself on a self guided tour and just take pictures at my leisure. Very nice building, and interesting history and State government information.

I worked in the Capitol Building for the Secretary of State. The Building is full of history and what a wonderful place to go to each day. You could listen to history talking while walking through the halls and you could picture women in long, beautiful dresses drifting down the stairs. I loved every minute I was there!

Compared to other state capitols it is a small building. However, it still has some beautiful glass work and detail in the construction. It is free to walk through and you can pick up a free self guided tour book. The book has some interesting information about the history of Wyoming. It didn't take us very long to see everything.

Great place to stop for a long or short visit. If the legislature is in session it's better, but any time of year is good to visit.

Neat capitol that was meeting as I visited. I asked if there was a unique feature to the building and was told there was a particular stair support that was installed upside down, because no place is prefect. Found it! The Indian statue in front is one of four and has a neat history.

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.
