4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is one of 11 gold domed capitols. Highly recommended for a guided tour. Very pretty outside and interesting history inside.

“Impressive historic building.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The tours of the building are free and you get to see both the senate room and the congress chamber as well as the ceremonial Governors office. The history of the place is fascinating with many original works of art and statues. The major rooms have all been restored to their original look with meticulous care being taken to ensure authenticity.

Winter in Montpelier was just fantastic, the people are extremely genuine and the state capital is just beautiful even though the snow was covering it all, must go to take a picture if you're in town!

“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Vermont State House is a very cool building to see, especially now that the restorations are finished. The tour is free and definitely worth taking. Make sure to check out the portrait of Howard Dean.

“Classic Capitol Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This capital city is very small so finding the capital is easy as it is the tallest building in town. The capitol is a beautiful classic building and the capital grounds are park like. Many people we playing on the grounds when I walked around.
