I love visiting state capitol buildings, and this was no exception. Free to enter, and a free brochure offers a self guided tour. A great way to spend an hour or two learning about Montana's political history.

What a magnificent building, worthy of a beautiful State. We were able to tour quietly by ourselves, enjoying particularly the stained glass windows, and peeping into the main rooms. The view from the first floor are spectacular. Wheelchair friendly too.

I like to drive up to the capitol and eat my lunch in a little park there and look at the building. I love to look at architecture and this is great

A state captiol, mostly business related buildings, allot of official stuff going on and worse than normal traffic. Interesting displays around and things to see on the grounds but not really worth the Hassel.

It is a beautiful building,but the tour guides have been laid off during the budget crunch so you can only do self guided tours with a small hand out. Still worth looking at if you are in the area.

Amazon To think this Bolt in 1909 in thé "old West". We were lucky to go with a Montana native well versed in the history of the area. If you are a history buff and/or art buff you should go.

We arrived here after the capitol building itself had closed but we enjoyed strolling the grounds and taking pictures in front of it. They have a very beautiful floral garden that spells out "Montana" in front of the capitol. There is something majestic about capitol...More

The Capitol building itself was beautiful and we took the self guided tour. However, a tour by someone from Montana would be so much better as we like to tour the Capitols so we can hear the history of the state. We were told that...More

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