Summary:

Built in 1798, the Massachusetts State House is home to the state government of

Massachusetts. Recognizable by its gold dome, this historic building has long served

while exploring this fascinating building and its history!

  • This is a Massachusetts state government facility. As such, all visitors will pass a security check (metal detector and possible wanding). No weapons are allowed (including mace). This sounds strange, but, normally, there is always one person who brings a weapon and, therefore, can not participate in the tour.
