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.

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.
