As a result of budget cuts imposed by the 2017 Legislature, guided tours of Montana's statehouse are no longer being given. You can still explore the Capitol on your own with the aid of self-guiding tour booklets and a scavenger hunt for kids led by Lewis and Clark’s intrepid Newfoundland, Seaman. These are available at the information desk on the first floor of the Capitol. Can’t make it to Helena? This virtual tour of the Capitol allows you to visit from the comfort of home.
To learn even more about the Capitol, you can read Montana's State Capitol: The People's House, written by Montana Historical Society staff members and art historian Dr. Patricia M. Burnham. Lavishly illustrated with both historic and modern photographs, this book provides in-depth information on the history, architecture, art, and sculpture of the Capitol building. It is available at the Montana Historical Society Store and other online stores, or at your local library through interlibrary loan.
