“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

In January, 2012 I attended a speech by the governor. As always, the Capitol is beautiful inside. There are guided tours every 1/2 hour during the week. Guides take people to places in the building; and point out unusual characteristics of the building. If not with a guide; it is o.k. to explore on your own. The cupola on the 4th floor is like the State's attic. It is accessed by a narrow starcase in the northwest corner of the building. Ask a guide or guard to point this out. It is worth the climb.
Parts of the Capitol building are under repair at this time. Be aware that some areas might be closed for the moment.

It is a beautiful historical building and interesting. Have enjoyed seeing quilts there and just hearing about the building of this building.

“1 mile above sea level!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

the employees at the State Capitol were polite & helpful via phone when I needed directions to find the famous steps. She even explained the revised measurement history! Arrived when other tourists were also at steps & everyone in a helpful mood to take pictures for each other. Overall a nice walk & picture taking moment. Great view of the rockies!!!
