Tour Information

The Colorado State Capitol welcomes about 300,000 visitors annually, with nearly 70,000 visitors taking tours of our beautiful and historic Statehouse.  We welcome you to visit and learn more about this building, the work of our General Assembly, and our unique Colorado heritage.

Capitol tours are limited to 30 people.  If your group has 10 or more visitors or has special needs, you are required to make a reservation.  We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes in advance of your tour, as tours do fill.

Demand for Capitol tours is high – group tour reservations can be made up to one calendar year in advance. Student group tours during the legislative session (January through May) are extremely popular and space is limited. Tour availability is not guaranteed as time slots do fill up quickly.

NOW RECRUITING VOLUNTEER TOUR GUIDES!   Visitor Services is now recruiting enthusiastic and friendly volunteer tour guides, with weekly Tuesday and Thursday shifts available. 
See our ad on volunteermatch.org or contact Visitor Services Assistant Manager Erika Österberg at erika.osterberg@state.co.us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
