Colorado State Capitol 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.
