Such a lovely building. Beautifully restored with great pride and attention to detail. We did a self-guided tour and found the guidebook adequately explained everything. Quite lovely and time well spent. Montana residents have a capitol to be very proud of!

The Montana Capital is a wonderful stop in Helena. You can get a tour of the capital which has a beautiful stain glass ceiling and wonderful art work. And it is free!

Had a nice tour of the building. We hear that the tour are to be discontinued, however, after August 18. The Charlie Russell painting is the highlight, of course, but the building worth seeing also.

I wanted to see the statue of Thomas Francis Meagher, Irish nationalist and Civil War hero, who is soon to be the subject of a movie based on The Immortal Irishman. Worth the visit, wish we had gone inside, too! Lovely gardens.

If you're passing through Helena it's well worth visiting the State Capitol building - the impressive building is surrounded by well maintained lawns.

We were able to walk around the building and see the gorgeous architecture. The building is immaculately taken care of! Beautiful stain glass and historic information! No cost.

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