Rhode Island State House - Review

This beautiful neoclassical building of white marble was constructed in 1904. It houses the Rhode Island general assembly, the offices of the governor, the lieutenant governor, Secretary of State and the general treasurer. Even before you step inside check out the marble dome of the building, which is the fourth largest self-supporting marble dome in the world. Also focus on the Statue of the Independent Man on top of the Dome. The Senate chamber is in the east wing while the representative chamber is in the west wing. The main architectural attraction inside is the rotunda; see the various artifacts such as guns and flags on the rotunda which represent the state’s military history. At the front entrance of the capitol you will find a Cannon. The best time to photograph the state house is at sunset. If you want to know the history of the building, take the brochure from the visitor center.

Rhode Island State House, Providence Reviews

  • We highly recommend visiting the Rhode Island state Capitol building. The hour long tour is very much worth it. Emily, our tour guide was an exceptionally wonderful story teller. We enjoyed hearing the story in the charter room. We have been to over 30 state Capitol buildings and this was one of the best tours we have gotten by far. Emily was engaging and good humored. You will learn a lot of the history of the state and of the capital.

  • We took a free tour which was guided by a local college student who is a history major. The state house is beautiful and bright, and our guide shared tons of Rhode Island history with us during the hour tour.

  • The building is an architectural beauty and positively brimming with history. Guided tours are available on the hour upstairs in the State Library. They have self-guided options as well but obviously you'll get a lot more info out of the knowledgeable guides. Tour lasts about an hour. Enter through the north entrance, pass security, and proceed upstairs to the second level. The State Library is located directly above where you entered.

  • Beautiful paintings and architecture. And the color scheme in the chambers is so gaudy its great.

  • This is an interesting place to visit. The state house is quite big and there is a pretty decent sized park around. There are a few restaurants in this era. We were able to find parking pretty easily here (paid parking). We were here during the weekend, so there were not a lot of people around.
