The statehouse is open to the public, has a visitors center and a museum at the parking level entrance. The architecture is superb and is a great place to visit at least once in your life.

The statehouse is located in the middle.of the downtown. So the parking and traffic is not perfect. But the downtown is clean and the statehouse is pretty good.

My granddaughter wanted to go in the "big building" and we did. She was amazed at the beauty of the building and the pictures and displays. Great educational tool for students.

An impressive historical building in the heart of downtown. Full of history and very attractive for a place that has the feel of a working building serving a populous State.

We visited the Statehouse in the morning, taking one of the guided tours that starts in the basement and also visiting the education center/museum. It was actually better and more interesting than I had dared to hope. The guided tour was very informative and overall it was a very interesting experience.

I was lucky to be a part of a small group (a mother and her 2 sons and myself). The guide was informative and entertaining.

The Statehouse is beautiful. Once you walk in you will be taken away. Seeing both the Ohio State Senator's room and the Ohio State Representatives room (which can be accessed by a side door to the left of the main large black doors where you are taken to the balcony) was breath taking. The architecture was outstanding and so much... More
