There are some very fine bronze statues, for example, of Jeanette Rankin and the Mansfields, that are worth seeing. There is a huge Russell painting that is important in the context of his output.

Our guide who also doubles as receptionist (volunteer) took us around the building explaining the structure and the artwork was very knowledgeable and friendly.

An obscure location for a capitol building. Handout provided for self guided tour (near security at information booth). Nice look into the chambers through glass. Beautiful art work throughout.

My husband is a history buff and can't pass up the chance to check out another state capitol building. This one is very worth the stop. The grounds are nice, the exterior is very cool, but the inside is fabulous. Take a look at the beautiful ceilings, stairway, and glass windows inside.

We're going around looking at state capitals, and this one measures up to its peers pretty well. The gardens are particularly nice. You can get a good pic if you're so inclined by stopping across the street.

Beautiful building and landscaping. Would recommend anyone to see it especially during the fall of the year. Love this building and churches around it.

Handicap accessible with good parking. Elevators to all floors. It is a beautiful building and a must see in Helena. A guided tour would give more info but our timing wasn't good.

While this is a grand old building with lots of history, we didn't feel it was worth any amount of time to explore. The guided tours offered were not available on any kind of a schedule. They were kind of catch as catch can. If you're interested in architecture it's a beautiful building. If you're interested in history, call first... More

We visited the Montana State capital in Helena and we're pleasantly surprised. The beauty of yesterday is captured in it's design and architecture, from tile floors to beautiful stained glass windows. Our visit was very interesting and enjoyable.
