About the State House Tours and Government Education Division

Established by an act of the legislature in 1969, the State House Tours Division now guides approximately 90,000 visitors annually through the halls of the state's capitol building. It provides an Architectural/Historical Tour and a Legislative Process Tour, as well as a number of brochures explaining the history of the State House and the passage of legislation. The Tours Division also provides its information in eight different languages and operates a desk which assists with questions on state government, locating personnel and various tourist inquiries. The desk has resource notebooks containing a wealth of information for school groups, journalists, historians and travel professionals. In addition, the Tours Division manages the operation of the State House Gift Cart, which offers souvenirs, books and other materials relating to the State House.
