The State House sits across from the Boston Common, overlooking the city from it's Beacon Hill high spot. Built in 1798, the copper sheathed dome is covered in 23karat gold and sparkles upon the city it oversees.
Within these walls, bills are passed, legislation is made, and tours are given. Open to the public, 45 minute State House Tours are offered Monday through Friday between 10am and 3:30pm. Tours are free of charge but a reservation is requested. Walk through the halls while seeing elected lawmakers hard at work. Who knows, you may even catch a glimpse of the Governor.See all Beacon Hill Attractions »
