We are pleased to announce that we are again offering free guided tours of the Capitol, beginning June 16, 2021.
These tours take about an hour and include a trip to the dome observation area. The dome is a 99 step climb above the 3rd floor and is accessible by stairs only. If you are not able to make the climb, we offer a video presentation of the dome on the third floor. (Self-guided tours of the dome are not permitted.)
The Capitol is open Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:00. Daily tours are available Monday-Friday at 10:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm. Capitol tours are limited to 15 people, first come first serve.
Masks and physical distancing are required while on tour. (Updated August 30, 2021)

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.
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.
