The Wyoming State Capitol is the state capitol and seat of government of the U.S. state of Wyoming. It contains the chambers of the Wyoming State Legislature and well as the office of the Governor of Wyoming.
The construction of the capitol was authorized for the Wyoming Territory in 1886.

The architecture of the building is renaissance revival, reminiscent of the National Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The sandstone for the building came from a quarry in Rawlins, Wyoming and Fort Collins, Colorado.

The building's cornerstone was laid on May 18, 1887, with maps, a roster of territorial officers and other papers inside. During the Centennial of the Capitol in 1987; the cornerstone was removed, these documents were replaced and the cornerstone reset.
