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

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)

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.
