The Montana State Capitol houses the Montana State Legislature and is located in the state capital of Helena.

The most notable feature inside the center of the Capitol building is the massive rotunda, with four circular paintings surrounding it.   These paintings depict four important archetypes of people of Montana's early history: a native American (intended to be of Chief Charlo), an explorer and fur trapper (Jim Bridger), a gold miner (Henry Finnis Edgar, one of the discoverers of gold at Alder Gulch), and a cowboy (unidentified).

Elizabeth and her daughter Kate visited here in July 2017.
