Did a self guided tour and managed to see all the important parts. It is a lovely building outside and inside. The paintings are amazing. Love how they preserve all the old chambers. A real sense of history!

Drive right up to the door and there are two visitor parking places that are very convenient. The doors are open so walk right in and look UP!

We so enjoyed seeing the paintings and the statues commemorating Montana's commitment to women's rights and contributions. Well worth a visit!

Fun for a short self tour. Interesting building in a nice small town. Feels very casual as you'd expect of a laid back rural state capital. Well worth a visit.

The Montana State Capitol worth a visit. The grounds are nice, I really enjoyed the Montana shaped shrubs with Montana written in with vegetation – it’s pretty clever and catches the eye. The Greek neoclassical (I had to be told) dome is copper seems extra...More

Unlike so many public buildings, the Montana State Capitol has been restored to it's original appearance. Lovely, bright colors, amazing stained glass. Self-guided tours are available. We arrived on a weekday, so there was little tourist activity and as the Legislature was not in session,...More

We did a self guided tour, which is easy to do and enjoyable. Met up with a tour guide who had one couple with him.He was extremely rude to me and was an embarassing and uncalled for experience. The building itself is outstanding and well...More

You need to go to the capital's website for this info, they do not hold session every year.
