Excellent tour with museum included in the basement with plenty to satisfy the history buff. Beautiful rotunda and office chambers. Go on the ghost tour in October to get a rare chance to see the old governors offices

The guided tour of the building is informative, interesting, and fun. We had a great guide who provided solid information without talking down nor talking over the heads of the diverse people in our small tour group. Highly recommended, especially if you’re from Ohio.

First off, it's free to do the tour of the statehouse. We had a great tour guide showing us the Senate, House chambers and the historical paintings. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the statehouse but also of other historical facts/places of Ohio. Practically learned...More
