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,

One of the places we wanted to visit in Cheyenne was the State Capitol Building. Unfortunately, it is closed for renovation and will be for the next three years. We managed to get a great photo of us in front of the building, by standing on the bench outside the railings (photo taken by the trolley driver)

It is under restoration and you cannot even get past the gate to see it very well. There is no completion date as yet.

There's a lot of American history that comes from Wyoming, particularly involving that area West of the Mississippi, and Cheyenne is the center of it.

Although I did not get to go inside on this trip, I did walk around the outside a few times. It was absolutely beautiful. The architecture, and walkways, and the landscaping make this a really nice place to take a stroll or snap a few tourist photos.

Travelers and tourists take note: The Capitol Building is closed for repairs and is not scheduled to reopen to the public until late in 2018 or perhaps 2019 if the $300 million project falls behind schedule.

Interior has fantastic woodwork and is very interesting to walk through all the hallways and go through the seating areas to observe the legislature when in session. Currently under renovation. Allow at least 1-2 hours to see everything.

When I'm in a Capital city, I like to take a look at the State Capital Buildings. Interesting to see, well kept, clean area. We had fun driving the streets to see everything.
