Beautiful building and really neat subway access underneath, mincing old with new. That said I wouldn’t recommend the museum, it’s rather small and unimpressive compared with the grandeur and history of the building. Not too expensive so if you’re there in the winter and looking...More

As a Bostonian and a history buff, there are so many places in the city to get your fix. But to me, there is nowhere like the Old State House. A beautiful colonial building that sits in the heart of Boston. Dwarfed by early 20th...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

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.
