An interesting building that served as the state capitol from the late 18th century to the 1930s. Not a large building, but the original setup inside has been restored. An informal tour is offered and you can walk through on your own. Well worth the...More

This building is beautiful. We parked out front on a Thursday. If you have a large Rv you'll want to park in another area. The tour guide had a lot of information and was very helpful.

The tour of the Old State House was very informative and the guide did a great job of giving you a feel for early Delaware politics and legal processes. We spent about 30 minutes on the tour and it was time well spent.
