About Idaho State Capitol, Boise

The capitol building although being a government property, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Idaho, thanks to its unique architecture and elegant, almost ethereal look. Situated in the centre of Boise, the beautiful building is doused in all white with its milk like sandstone walls and elegantly carved pillars. Though the entrance to the functional rooms are closed for visitors (except for those with permission), the premises endowed with numerous statues and a nice long park area is accessible for everyone to just sit for a while, discuss the politics and other interesting happenings of the world or just have a quiet nice time admiring the surrounding.

Idaho State Capitol, Boise Reviews

  • Spent about an hour wandering around. The photos of the sessions were a great place to start learning a little bit more about my adopted home. I had no idea Idaho was so progressive when it came to women in public office.

  • I must say that it is the most beautiful state capitol I have visited yet. The marble work is exquisite! The color accents and mosaics are tastefully done. Take a stroll through the grounds too. I particularly like the Lewis and Clark sculpture.

  • This building is absolutely gorgeous and full of history. This is certainly a place worth your time.

  • One of the best state capital buildings I've toured (Missouri's is a close second). Visited in December and enjoyed seeing holiday decorations.

  • Beautiful building with a lot of history. Originally intended to be built in Lewiston until the plans were stolen by some rabble-rousers(future state government leaders) and brought to Boise where they were immediately put into place. Construction had begun before anyone could stop them and they just decided to let it happen. During the Christmas season the state seal is lifted exposing a large hole in the ground, this hole is subsequently filled with a huge decorated tree!
