Check the times and avail yourself of a 1 hour free docent led tour of the capital. It is an interesting story indeed of how this building came to be with add ones, remodeling and finally restoration.

The stained glass windows are spectacular and the marble that is everywhere is incredible. The western artwork is fantastic and you really get the old west feel.

Having seen most of the state Capitals .. the Montana State Capital Building in Helena is very impressive. The most interesting feature were the huge Old West Murals around the building. Go see the Montana State Capital .. it's worth the trip and the time.

Adequate parking in very near proximity to the front entrance. Lovely grounds and gardens makes for a lovely stroll around the grounds.

Helena's capitol building is beautiful. You will love seeing all the CM Russell paintings. The marble throughout the building is just beautiful. Be sure & set aside a couple hours to walk around & take in all the history.

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