I enjoyed the statues and art, as well as the architecture of the facility. I went on a Sunday and was able to stand in the middle of the road with not a single car pass by, so I was able to get that perfect picture...

After finally making out of Nebraska we stayed over and toured Cheyenne in the morning. The capital was a great stop. It is a beautiful building and the Sculptures were lovely and informative. Having 3 teenage girls it was nice to see a Statue commemorating Wyoming as the 1st state to allow women's rights. I never knew that either.

We really enjoyed seeing this state capitol....however, you need to keep your eyes on the road because of the one-way streets in the area. Also, you need to check out the area around the capitol....very nice residential areas.

There are so many hidden gens in this beautiful building. The staff was wonderful. If you are in Cheyenne you must visit now. They are supposed to be closing this building sometime in July 2015 and will be closed for at least 3 years to do a full remodel. Can't wait to see the changes. Hope they keep the beautiful... More

Interesting architecture. Historic designs from early twentieth century. Liked the gold treatment on the dome.

Nice grounds and the gold dome was pretty. Small state where the legislature only meets for 2 months a year. So the taxpayers are safe. Heard they have lots of oil and mineral money so every school in the state is modern with current tech.

As far as state capitols go, the Wyoming building is one of the smaller, in my experience. But, nice things can come small packages, and that's the case here. The gold dome is awesome, along with lots of beautiful glass work, marble floors, beautiful staircases with fabulous woodwork all around. Lots of statues on the grounds (I especially like Esther...

This is a simple trip, in and around the capital building. The interior and exterior of the dome is very beautiful.
