Coming to the capital city sometime soon?





Dear Friends:

Coming to the capital city sometime soon?

Why not fit in a visit to the Indiana Statehouse while you are here?

Tours are available every weekday, except for holidays. Three types of tours can be scheduled during regular working hours. All are free of charge.

  • The Welcome Tour is a 15-minute orientation lecture held in the Statehouse Rotunda. After the lecture is over, guests can tour the building on their own. You will not have access to executive, legislative or judicial rooms or offices.
  • The Express Tour, lasting 30 to 45 minutes, gives an overview of the Statehouse and a guided view of the chambers of the Indiana House and Senate and the Indiana Supreme Court. These tours take place depending on the schedule of the group and the tour guide.
  • The Statehouse Tour is 90 minutes long and can be scheduled for as many as 120 people, including students and teachers. It combines building and state history, and the group will visit an office in each branch of government, depending on availability. This tour also includes visits to the House, Senate and Supreme Court, and elected officials may speak to a group if schedules permit.

       The Statehouse Tour Office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for legal holidays. Tours are given from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Saturdays, tours leave the Statehouse Rotunda at 10:15 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m.

The tour office is closed on Sundays.

Please remember that visitors to the Statehouse will have to go through security, including passing through metal detectors. All bags and packages will be x-rayed and inspected.

Handicapped individuals and scheduled tours will enter the building through the west doors on the lower level from Senate Avenue (the Robert D. Orr Plaza). All other visitors must enter using the east doors on the upper level of the Statehouse that fronts the intersection of Capitol Ave. and Market St.
