Me and my friend spent one and a half hour to explore The Ohio Statehouse. It’s a beautiful building with a nice architecture. It’s worth a visit when you are in Columbus.

We had a guided tour of the building with access to the legislative chambers. The buildings architecture is interesting and learning that much of the material used to build it was sourced locally from Ohio was interesting. Don’t miss the county map on the lower...More

I visited the statehouse several years ago and enjoyed it. It is visited as a guided tour which takes you through the main dome lets you see the legislative chambers. While often thought of as a "school group" attraction, it is enjoyable even for adults....More

We are traveling to each state to see the state capitols and we thought Ohio was really pretty. We weren't able to go in because they were already closed but grounds are nice.

The Ohio State Capital building is different from most capital buildings in that (1) it doesn’t have the traditional outside dome, and (2) it is not located high on a hill, visible from all points in the city (in fact, you can hardly see it);...More

Enjoyed tour. Step back into history & learn. Didn't realize how much Ohio played in US history. The taxidermy Pigeon was interesting. The little Ohio museum within was a little disappointing. Too much reading to enjoy, especially for someone who isn't from Ohio.
