When in Denver, a must visit is the highlight of the Skyline – Golden domed Colorado State Capitol! Originally, it was made of Copper but due to harsh weather, it was decided to give it a makeover and was covered with 200 ounces of gold. Multiple applications of gold leaf was required to give its present shine and regal look!

Of all the exhibits, Mr Brown’s attic is the most interesting and one of the best place to learn about history of Colorado, details about Capitol’s construction and the building as a whole and a spot dedicated to kids as well!

Don’t forget to take your picture at the steps in front as it is exactly a mile high, thus giving the City its tag – The Mile High City!

With beautiful golden plating adorning the well crafted architecture of the building, Colorado State Capitol is capable to mesmerise anyone on its first sight. Decorating the skylines of Denver, this attraction is open for visitors during certain days. You do not have to buy any Colorado State Capitol Tickets or pay any Colorado State Capitol Ticket Prices during these visits. If you are planning to visit in group, reservations will be required.

  • I had such a great time here with my family! They have lots of really pretty architecture, plus plenty of books and crannies to explore: including an old fashioned telephone booth and a shoe shine stand. It also has a scavenger hunt for all the kids so the whole family can go. Lots of photo opportunities all over and all the staff were so kind and helpful. Warning, there is a lot of stairs to get in, but once you are in there is an elevator. They also offer tours of this building from opening until 3pm. Definitely a fun place to explore!

  • What a beautiful building this is! There is so much detail put into everything and the tour is absolutely worth taking! I was amazed by the view at the top and the fact that you can walk around outside and see the mountains! Too much to list, see my photos!

  • This is your state Capitol. It is a beautiful building, has helpful staff to guide you, a wonderful attic museum. Book with info desk to get to climb steps to the dome. If you come January through early May, that's when the legislature is in session, so it is more active then. Visit your legislator to let the person know of issues important to you.

  • What a gorgeous old building. You should definitely take the tour and go all the way to the top of the dome. It provides awesome views of the city and all the way out to the Rockies. It is well maintained and the building is a great display of history. Don't pass up a restroom, they are hard to find.

  • There is so much to see and take in at the Capitol that I strongly recommend taking the tour. I bring my students on a field trip here almost every year, and I am always be impressed by the knowledge and the skills of the tour guides. After the guided tour, visitors can wander as they wish, and at their own pace.
