Such an incredibly, preserved physical presence smack dab in the heart of one of our great cities. Looking for a way to lose yourself in early American history for a winter afternoon? You've come to the right place. You move from room-to-room, with the exhibits presented in excellent proportion, so you don't feel your brain getting crammed with too much too quickly. If you're like me, you forgot much of what you learned in grade school about the events leading up to the American Revolution, with just a few touchstones still available for you to ponder over . . . The Boston Tea Party . . . The Boston Massacre . . . Paul Revere's Ride . . . The Old State House fills in all the blanks, all the precursors to these momentous events in an even-handed, but still thoroughly patriotic manner. There are artifacts, there are placards of explication. All seem gauged to engage but never have you peering over your shoulder to count how many more rooms there are to go through. Because you're going to want to go through them all. You would question your citizenship if you didn't, so attractively aesthetically and intellectually are the presentations. And once you've soaked all this in and become far more culturally literate about American history than you were before you stepped inside, you can step outside, immediately outside and plant your feet on that notorious / celebrated piece of earth where the Massacre occurred. Wow! In every regard. One of the signature stops on any history enthusiast's tracking of early American history.

Must see when doing the Freedom Trail. I did not do the museum, but this piece of history is beautiful from the outside. I find the clash of styles with the modern buildings surrounding it quite beautiful.

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

This was one stop on our Boston trip we didn't want miss! The tour was full of history! The guide definately her history! Listening to the story you could envision yourself right in the middle of the massacre. Beautiful building kept in immaculate shape.

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.
