DH is a nerd when it comes to state capitol buildings, so touring this was a "must do" during our Denver stay. We were not disappointed -- even though we opted not to take an organized tour as such (although these are available), we found that walking around and taking in the exhibits at our own pace offered an excellent primer into the state's history.
Although marveling at the overall architecture and construction and looking at the legislative chambers is interesting enough, IMO the most informative exhibit is "Mr. Brown's Attic," which goes through the history of the building's construction in the late 19th/early 20th century.
If you are able, climb the remaining 61 stairs from Mr. Brown's attic to the Rotunda -- the view is SPECTACULAR and well worth the effort.
