  • Such a lovely state capitol. Just recently totally renovated. Thanks to a wonderful guide who told us which parts of building were best. The stairs where the statues of the 4 sisters were placed in niches were excellent. Take time to watch the orientation movie. Tiffany style stain glass in three locations is superb. The cherry wood balustrades beautiful. Gold leaf dome - Wow. We loved the entire building.
  • My son and I visited the Wyoming State Capitol during a recent road trip and were very impressed with how lovely and well-maintained the building is. The people of Wyoming can be justifiably proud of this magnificent public building. As far as the statuary is concerned, I was most impressed with the buffalo (aka bison) statue on the capitol grounds. It gives the pair of buffalo statues in the Manitoba Provincial Capitol building a run for their money. Which is better? You decide!
