Completed in 1860, this beautiful Greek Revival has been the state of Ohio's centre of government since 1857. It has some impressive artworks and monuments. The Statehouse has been the centre of some important historical events, such as the location where 18 year olds were given the right to vote. The best way to explore is by tour. These tours come in several varieties.

Ohio Statehouse Reviews & Ratings
We visited from Cleveland, and it was a wonderful experience to see the Capitol of our own state. Even on a Monday morning it was a quick, painless drive from a nearby suburb where our hotel was. We parked in the garage under the building that was easy to find and very inexpensive (for 2 hours it was $4). We began the free tour in the Map Room that has all of the counties of Ohio in stone, which was a very beautiful tribute to each location. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the buildings, as well as current happenings in the government. It is a beautifully done Greek Revival style building that has many tributes to the history of Ohio. There is also a very interactive museum that houses modern displays of new government as well as the original Ohio declaration. Everyone was friendly, had a kind welcome and warm smile. We felt so welcome and will be happy to return- an overall great experience. It made us very proud to be Ohioans!
Beautiful structure. One of my favorites in Ohio.
please explain to me how you allow candice keller in the position she is in and posting about mass shootings. are caused by trans people gay marriage. how dare she say something like that with that she should be sanctioned by the state house and shut down about the issue SHE SHOULD BE MADE TO GO ON LIVE TV AND MAKE A VERY PUBLIC APOLOGY FOR HER STATEMENTS ON THE MASS SHOOTINGS
Thank you to the rich new governor of Ohio that can afford the gas hike and doesn't care for other Ohioans. Awesome job. And pretty the GOP has freedom of speech hmm#y'allneedJesus
What an incredible experience. Beautiful architecture, wonderful history and well preserved and detailed grounds. We had a great time. Parking was easy and affordable and everyone was friendly. This is a great tribute to Ohioans and Americans alike.
