We enjoyed visiting the VT Statehouse while the Legislature was in session. There were no metal detectors and no obvious security. We were able to wonder around the building and enjoyed seeing the numerous portraits of former governors and others including U.S. presidents Calvin Coolidge...More

Never been to Montpelier before and didn't know what to expect.. but the Vermont State House is a really nice capital building with a nice ground area. There was benches and everything was nice and clean.

Offers Democrats, Republicans and Progressives. Too much hot air January to April. A certain madness can set in during any number of issues. Nice bright cafeteria.

Beautiful, classic, golden domed historic building with well tended gardens. Inside, the stone floor and staircase, the high ceilings with carved and painted wood trim, the old, cushioned wooden seats and the massive chandelier in the house chambers make images of revolutionary day's speakers easy...More

Made it a point to stop here while visiting Montpelier - was really impressed with how nice the building is & the picturesque grounds. Was unable to take a tour, but would love to when back in the area. Great photo ops!

The towns of Waterbury, Stowe and Quechee are nice small towns to visit that are close to Montpelier, if you have a couple or few days to enjoy Vermont.
