There's a lot to see under that gold dome. Some impressive architecture, for starters, in addition to the permanent displays of stained glass, portraits, photographs, quilts and flags. The Capitol also hosts rotating exhibits provided by Colorado Creative Industries, including the current Colorado Scenic and Historic Byways show, celebrating the program that marks its thirtieth anniversary this year. Climb the stairs for a good look at the native stone used to build the Capitol, then keep climbing to Mr. Brown's attic, a 2,000-square-foot gallery between the third floor and the dome, dedicated to the history of the Capitol building, with pictures and artifacts that tell the story of the building from its beginnings — when developer Henry C. Brown donated the land — to today.
