stately tour
Sep 2021
After finishing the free walking tour around downtown Denver, I decided on a whim totally unplanned to rush back here to get in the last free tour at 2:00 (I the only one there so it was quite an exclusive tour). The building itself is quite impressive inside but when you mix in an hour's worth of historical, interesting facts it made it all the more impressive. The best part is at the end being taken up to the very top of the dome outside to walk around the catwalk; what a view! Tom is a fabulous tour guide.

Thoroughly Enjoyed the Tour
Sep 2021 • Couples
Enjoyed the tour and history lesson. I was impressed by the build quality of the structure and glistening polished brass fittings throughout .The cell phone pictures of the inside rotunda were great. The inlaid onyx marble walls and several levels of rotunda and steps and glistening brass pops on camera. Also enjoyed the walk to the top of the rotunda. Well worth doing. Highly recommended .

Go to the mile high step
Aug 2021
While the Capital was closed, we went to go to the spot where you are exactly 1 mile above sea level. It's clearly marked and people noticed what we were doing and we pointed it out and we all were taking pictures of each other for each other. Nice community experience!

This capital is average at best, not much great architecture and the biggest problem was our tour guide. Friday at 2 was not good he did not wait for everyone to be present and rambled on in a monotone voice. The visit to the dome was the best part of the tour and he did not tell us anything about the dome.

Good looking Capitol building
Aug 2021
We flew into Denver Airport and got a rental car. On our way out of town we wanted to do a little sightseeing. In the middle of the day, it wasn't bad at all driving to the Capitol building and other sites nearby (City Park -- great view of downtown from the Nature & Science musuem, Molly Brown house, ...).

The Capitol building is attractive and neat to see from various angles as you drive and/or walk around it. It was worth seeing.

Must-see!
Aug 2021
I would for some stop by here or walk around if you haven't been but be careful because a lot of homeless people hang out around here so it can get sketchy.

Excellent Tour
Aug 2021 • Family
Definitely recommend the tour which also sprinkles in some Colorado history. The view from the dome would have been awesome if it hadn’t been for the exceptionally hazy day.

Cool area-definitely worth visiting
Jul 2021
Very nice area. Worth walking around and visiting. Be prepared as there were a lot of homeless in the area but many outreach groups were helping which was good to see.

We had an excellent tour. This is a very interesting building both in the materials used to build it and its history. The view from the cupola is fantastic.

Filler stop
Jun 2021 • Couples
We stopped on a Tuesday around 3ish, filling time. We found parking on the back side of the building on the street. Homeless people in the park on the back side of the building were panhandling for money and cigarettes. We took the obligatory pictures on the mile high step, which was interesting. Disappointing to find the Colorado Capitol Building victim to cancel culture where you find only an empty statue pedestal that was boarded up. When my husband did some research, it appears to have been a statue of a Union Civil War soldier. The large park on the front side of the building was completely fenced off (not sure why)
