The Idaho State Capitol Building is stunning. The marble, the history displays, the staff, all well represent the state of Idaho. We visited here first prior to other local sites and found that we had gained a level of knowledge that could be applied when visiting other sites. It really is a must see.

Had a bit of time to kill while waiting for a friend so checked out the Capitol building. Walked around a little and then went below to visit the gift shop which has a lot of cool trinkets and local items.

Having been through Boise many times, we'd never laid over for a day to look at things. The capitol was close to downtown. Beautiful building. Really good descriptions, exhibits, and history write-ups. The legislature wasn't in session so we had it pretty much to ourselves. Plan to spend an hour just reading all the information signs

If you enjoy visit state capitols then this is worth a visit. It's quite small and unfortunately doesn't fill you in on its description.

We were visiting from out of town and visited the Capitol building. We took some family photos in front of the building and also when we descended from the 2nd floor on the grand front steps. The Capitol building was beautiful inside as well. On the bottom floor you can watch a video and there are historical displays and some interactive for kids. We went to each floor and could see the Senate and House chambers. We spent about an hour and the whole family enjoyed it.
