The Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne is a wonder to be seen. Unfortunately, it currently is closed for renovation and is scheduled to reopen in mid-2019. But it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and designated a National Historic Landmark...More

As viewed by the trolley tour and a walk where the streets are closed, it looks like it would be very difficult to go in the building. We did meet a man on Saturday at the Wyoming State Museum who claimed to be the architect...More

The block and building are currently closed for restoration. Unfortunately, it was also closed two years ago when we were here. They have made fine progress since our last visit. I’m sure it will be beautiful.

The State Capitol is closed for a major overhaul. I think it is scheduled to reopen July 2019. I am sure it is worth a visit but cannot properly rate at this time

The capital building fits the local theme and even looks like Edwardian architecture and is decorated like a capital should be. Stop and take a handful of pictures and get a tour if you can. You might also see if the governor's mansion is open...More
