Old State House:
The Old State House is currently not accessible, however, Revolutionary Spaces is actively undergoing plans to make this building fully accessible. In the meantime, please be aware that there are many stairs in the building.

The galleries are located on the first and second floors with restrooms and preservation information in the basement.
