Right in the heart of a busy area of Boston you will find the Old State House. It is beautiful and what a great historical place. Make sure you find out about the history of this place. Worth the visit!

This is a great little museum. We took the last tour of the day and were sorry we didn’t have more time. If we have time we’ll definitely go back. The tour guide knew his stuff and brought the history to life.

I am a real history buff and this proved worth visiting. Surrounded by modern skyscrapers so glad the city never made the decision to tear this building down.

One of the landmarks on Boston's Freedom Trail, it is the oldest surviving public building in Boston, and now serves as a history museum operated by the Bostonian Society. Small, and cramped, but I guess that's what it used to be like, so I can’t...More

I spent maybe 45 mins to an hour. But you can break off when you like or simply walk around yourself. Tour is worth it for information. No extra charge I remember.
