One of Denver’s most beautiful buildings is also home to our state legislature. The Colorado State Capitol welcomes about 300,000 visitors annually, with nearly 70,000 visitors taking tours of the historic Statehouse including its iconic gold dome. FREE tours begin on the first floor of Capitol Building and consist of early Colorado history, Capitol construction, several stained glass windows, Women’s Gold Tapestry, Presidential portraits and a quick stop outside the Senate and House of Representatives chambers.
The best part — you’ll also stop at Mr. Brown’s Attic Museum and the Dome Observatory Deck.
Public tours are offered hourly from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Arrive 20 minutes in advance as tours do fill quickly.
If you can’t work a tour into your schedule, you are welcome to self-guide throughout the building any time Monday to Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., but note that you will not be able to visit the dome on a self-guided tour.
