Cool that they still use it (for a subway). Have to pay to walk around but still very cool.

There's a lot of history in this landmark, which is great, but then there's not much landmark (the size of a large house) so this is best seen as part of a larger tour or excursion.

This was an enriching experience! Don't forget to take a historical tour or listen to the Boston Massacre lecture by Kathee! Definitely a worthwhile stop in a city full of historical significance.

Beautiful and wonderful historic site. Would visit many times. I may be biased as I was proposed to under the balcony but this is a sure place to see while in Boston. Great history inside and out!

If you like history then this is definitely for you. Even if you don't like history, then it's a great landmark in Boston to visit. The Old State House was the site of the Boston Massacre, a fight in the streets of Boston between the angry colonists and British redcoats on March 5, 1770 in which 5 people died. The front of the building is where the massacre happened. There is a circle to mark the massacre on the ground in front of the building. The ground floor inside the building is used for the Boston Subway System. The second floor is a gift shop where visitors can go inside for free. The third floor is a museum where you have to pay to visit. I've never done the museum, so I can't review on that.

Went here for a wedding, and it was very nice, though cocktail hour among the exhibits was a bit crowded. The rest of the space worked well for a smallish (60 ppl?) wedding ceremony in the main hall and reception in the other larger part.
