  • This is one of the coolest places I have ever been to. Visiting from Canada, the tour was excellent. Learnt a lot about the history of the Legislature. Our tour guide was excellent and he was really funny too. He really cracked us up and made the tour interesting. This is one of the places that if I visit Vermont again, I will surely stop by again.

  • Quintessential building with history lessons in every step. Well worth the visit.

  • Not good treatment of m'ikmaq , Native american veterans and abeneki . wabanaki are also part romani. in 1991 -1996 I attended some state school scouting programs/ st Boy scout troop 111 in Brandon . and law enforcement explorer post 111 at brandon district court. They were also using indian scouting programs at industrial schools. They were for early forms of indian education in vermont. they were though the brandon state school ( supposedly for the feeble minded indians. Recently i learned about orange shirt day . it is a day for survivors of residential and industrial schools. a few Modern day industrial schools still exist to day such as job corps in vermont and maine

  • Magnificent capitol, both from the outside and inside. It's quite picture-worthy, especially at night when the building is lit nicely. The free guided tour was very informative. Definitely join one if you are visiting. I was quite surprised to learn that the legislature only meets for about four months in a year, during the first quarter! We were able to visit the legislative halls since there were no on-going sessions. At the end of the tour, visitors can stay and head to the cafeteria for food and drinks. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, especially the ladies at the gift shop. If you don't have time for the tour, you can check out the virtual tour on their website.

  • Fun, historic and I tereating. You can just walk right in and look arou d, even go to the Cafe up stairs in the back that legislators go to.
