Things to Do in Boise: Boise State Capitol

Thursday, September 11, 2014

On Labor Day, we were able to visit Boise State Capitol. It was a fun and free activity. We walked in and grabbed a self-tour guide. The capitol was welcoming to visitors and fairly empty. The capitol is small compared to others, but has some interesting features and highlights. Highlights of the capitol include a carved wooden statue of George Washington painted in gold by Charles Ostner, the rotunda, replica of the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the senate wing, the house wing and a replica of the Liberty Bell in front of the capitol. We did a short walk through since I had my little one with me, but I would say you could tour the capitol on your own within an hour or two. The capitol grounds also have picnic tables so that you can enjoy a picnic on the grounds before or after your tour. To learn more about the capital, go here.
