This is such a cool building! At first the green and fuchsia painted interior can be a little jarring, but information signs and videos explain the colors as well as other decor. The stained-glass windows are absolutely brilliant, as is the statue of Jeanette Rankin...More

Newly renovated, the colors are magnificent and the Senate and Supreme Court Galleries take you in the way back machine. I also appreciated that there were so many profiles of women in MT history

This is worth the stop to look around the capital. There is beautiful architecture and artwork in the building. There are a number of original Charlie Russell painting that are well worth the visit alone.

The architecture and design is stunning. Tiled floors, stained glass windows, ornate domes, it is almost breath-taking to see how beautiful this building is. Not to mention all the history behind it, or the CM Russell painting.

Went here for business and had never been to the capitol before. Very interesting, and something everyone should experience for themselves.

I love visiting state capitol buildings, and this was no exception. Free to enter, and a free brochure offers a self guided tour. A great way to spend an hour or two learning about Montana's political history.
