Was a quiet day so had a personal tour talking about Boston Massacre and the building itself. Two ladies who gave the tour were both very knowledgeable and passionate about the history.

The gift shop has almost everything and you can get tons of souvenirs here for cheaper than most places. I recommend the tour. If you are lucky and it's timed right, you can get 2 or 3 tours for the price of 1. I love that the people that work here have so much knowledge of the events of that era. This is a must stop for any history buff as well as children.

Enjoyed a visit to the Old State House today. Had the opportunity to be a part of three tours during my stay. All three were conducted by different young ladies who were well versed in the subject matter. They very obviously knew their material and enjoyed sharing it with the tourists. Fortunately the tours were pretty much back to back to back so there were just a few minutes between them. A visit carries a $10 entrance fee but for me it was worth it. The total time there including the tours and a self guided stroll through the museum was about 90 minutes.

The Old State House if full of history and is very interesting. You can tour it by yourself or you can sit in on a guided tour. Be aware, they do not allow you to bring in backpacks, and that includes purses that are worn on the back!

Pretty Interesting to see this old building stand out among-st the towering building surrounding it. Not to mention to different phases to has under gone over the years of existence. Still in amazing shape after alot of restorations over the years and is an icon of old historian building. Quite interesting small tour of our history to becoming a nation. I would go again.
