  • A beautiful statehouse with a lot of helpful employees. I’ve been here on a lot of field trips and have learned something new every time. Tours are very interesting and informative and are open to the public. The amount of marble is almost overwhelming but definitely beautiful. One of my classes was able to take part in a mock debate in the House chambers, an unforgettable experience to say the least. For the smallest state, Rhode Island’s statehouse sure is spectacular.
  • This place definitely deserves 5 stars. There are so many reasons but formost is it’s beauty. State house is Center of attraction for Rhode Island and if you are looking to visit it, it can be one of the best place to start your trip. 3-4 minutes walk and you have parking where you pay only $2 for 2 hours. You can go to Canal side and so on from State house.
