When this is reopened it will be amazing - until then, there's an exhibit at the Wyoming State Museum about what you would see if you could see inside the Capitol, and some videos about why this renovation is necessary.

What a great place to get a quick summary of Wyoming. It was just the right size. We were able to see everything in a little more than an hour. Free admission but I am sure you'll want to make a donation after you've been there.

We stopped here hoping to see a bit more of the Capitol than we did. While we knew that we couldn't get inside due to the renovations, I hadn't expected so much external scaffolding. From what I could see though it does look cool.

The beautiful capitol is under renovation. So, put this on a must do but later list. It is completely closed now.

The state capital is beautiful. The dome stands out an reflects the importance of the building. While it was being renovated on our visit, the renovation did not distract from its beauty.

The Capitol was blocked off due to construction. Pretty average but may be more appealing once the construction is finished.

They are currently working on the outside of the capitol building and there is scaffolding everywhere. In its current state of repairs, it's not the best for taking pictures,

Renovation going on. Attorney General Peter K Michael was giving a tour of Capitol grounds to some young men attending Boys State Competition. Michael was kind enough to answer several questions for me regarding the on going renovation. As visitors to Wyoming my friend and I are impressed with the kindness and helpfulness extended to us. I hope some day... More
