Ohio Statehouse Museum Education Center
As the home of state government in our republic, the Ohio Statehouse is a destination for citizens and their proxies to participate, debate, engage and learn about Ohio government and history. More than 70,000 people visit the Statehouse each year.
The Statehouse was opened to legislators and the public in 1857 when the House and Senate began meeting in their respective chambers and most of the executive offices were occupied. It was completed in 1861.The Statehouse has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. This honor recognizes the long history of the building and the continued role it will have in the life and lawmaking of the state of Ohio.
