The Montana State Capitol worth a visit. The grounds are nice, I really enjoyed the Montana shaped shrubs with Montana written in with vegetation – it’s pretty clever and catches the eye. The Greek neoclassical (I had to be told) dome is copper seems extra fitting in Montana. There’s a female statue on top of the dome. The rotunda is... 更多
Unlike so many public buildings, the Montana State Capitol has been restored to it's original appearance. Lovely, bright colors, amazing stained glass. Self-guided tours are available. We arrived on a weekday, so there was little tourist activity and as the Legislature was not in session, little professional activity. However, we did take the tour and wished we had more time.... 更多
We did a self guided tour, which is easy to do and enjoyable. Met up with a tour guide who had one couple with him.He was extremely rude to me and was an embarassing and uncalled for experience. The building itself is outstanding and well worth seeing.

The guide was so knowledgeable he made history literally come to life. His background knowledge added so much to the tour. One of the best guides we have ever had the pleasure to listen to... 更多

The guide brought us through both chambers as we learned about the history of Montana. The Legislature only meets... 更多
We were touring Montana and stayed in Helena our last night. We took the kids and toured the capital. They have a great self guided tour that you can take and really gives you a lot of background for someone that is not from the area
