It's small but very neat. I learned a lot and it's air-conditioned!

Great mix of self guided tour and snippets from people who work there. Lots of info and very informative. Short enough for kiddos of almost any age!

This groupon is definitely worth it. If walking The Freedom Trail in Boston, the Old State House is on the trail and worth stopping in.
