We walked over from our hotel one morning. We stopped at the park across the street and got some really gorgeous photos. The view from here is really nice and the capitol building is quite beautiful.

Go to top and you can see for miles! Interesting info about the building! It's a free tour and there is a museum up at the top. Must be able to walk up stairs.

I got shown around this lovely building by a State Senator and yes its a working envioroment where people come to work.. You can pretty much wander around on your own and look at all the history this place has to offer.. Spend at least an hour here and you'll never know who you might bump into

Disclaimer: Hubby and I have traveled a great deal in Europe and toured some showstoppers. While this late-1800s building is full of brass, marble, carvings, etc., it's very modest by comparison. If you have the same travel experiences, don't go expecting to be dazzled by the interior. Do go – on a clear day – to be dazzled by the... More

The gold on the dome is beautiful and well maintained and a tour through the building is lovely. This is a must-see for those who love old and inspiring architecture.

The Capitol builing is beautiful. It sits above a great park. However the park is full of homeless and people crashed out on the grass. Not what I want to see when visiting from out of town.

Awesome State Capitol. Great free tours of this beautiful building of our states history. The materials used in building are as diverse as the stories of its past, Great art pieces, wonderful chandeliers, this building is also within two blocks of the Denver Mint, just behind our City County building.

We toured the capitol. Had a great time doing so. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The last part of the tour takes you outside of the dome. Spectacular views await you. Take your time climbing the stairs for 2 things. To check out the stained glass and oxygen!! You will get winded. Remember, you will be above... More
