We didn't realize that there were guided tours, but stumbled into a mini-tour of the governor's conference room. A nice self guided tour book was available. I think I would go on the guided tour next time. It is definitely worth your time to see...More

A nice lawn defines this beautiful capitol dome and surroundings. A nice visit and a place for the kids to enjoy the stairs and lawn. Nice picture taking of family, as well.

My family and I always try and visit state capitol buildings when possible. It educates both parents and kids and can be an excellent family outing. Helena's state capitol building happens to be one of the most beautiful we've seen thus far. Our tour guide...More

A real pleasant surprise, we got to wander the halls of the Capitol building and do a self-guided tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Well worth the visit. We were invited to join a tour in progress. We saw the senate and house chambers. The domed ceiling has paintings of local interest. A Charles Russell mural adorns the senate chamber front wall.

Very majestic building with pillars on the front sides and lions on the side entrance! Marble structures and displays with the Montana history explained. Liberty bell on the second floor. You are able to see legislation creation in action. People were courteous and professional.

I didn't expect much when I walked in, but I was blown away by the detail, especially in the rotunda. Gorgeous and a must visit when in Helena.

I'm a huge fan of capitols. They present the state to its people and to outsiders. Montana's is lovely. There's no security to go through, just a nice guard who pointed out the self-guided tour pamphlets. There is a sign saying "no guns", which we...More

The Montana State Capitol in Helena is absolutely beautiful. We're visited in June and saw the senate and old Supreme Court rooms. The house was not open. The interior design of the building was beautiful. Not the largest state Capitol we've visited but set on...More

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