Colorado State Capitol
For a historically and governmentally insightful learning experience in Denver take your group to the Colorado State Capitol!
This Corinthian style, gold-domed building offers tours, temporary exhibits, and photo ops throughout, not to mention glimpses of the current Colorado Governor and Lieutenant Governor's offices. The Colorado State Capitol is home to the Colorado General Assembly as well. This building is a part of a much larger conglomerate of important government establishments known as the Capitol Hill District.
During your visit opt in for a public or private group tour, the tours showing you the main offices inside, as well as the grounds outdoors known as Lincoln Park. Here is where you will see various state buildings, the popular Veteran's Memorial, the Liberty Bell replica, and even the official 'Mile High Marker' on the 15th step right outside the capitol doors.
You will learn quite a bit about the capitol building, the facts ranging from the architectural details of this neoclassical, beaux-arts style building made of granite and gold (the dome gold in honor of the Colorado Gold Rush), to the rare Colorado Rose Onyx on the inside. Explore the temporary displays in the basement, 2nd, and 3rd floors, and then head down to the 1st floor to explore the gift shop before you go.
