Colorado State Capitol Building
While the gilded dome of this building may attract the attention of visitors, the history and stunning architectural features inside holds their real interest. Standing precisely one mile above sea level, its observation deck offers impressive views of Denver, the Rocky Mountains and the surrounding plains. At Colorado State Capitol Building, you can get your fill of local history by scanning the murals on the first floor and the onyx busts of Denver's important historical figures. Be sure to also take a tour of the impressive House and Senate chambers. Guided tours are available and admission is free.
The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and the brass, marble and stained glass make it an absolutely beautiful building on the inside. Free tours are given of both the main building and the dome. There is a small museum on the way to the dome that has the history of building the capitol. Incredible views of the city and mountains from the dome!
