“Asian American Commission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

We attended a swearing in for our friend, who became a new Commissioner in the State Asian American Commission. The beautiful flag room is spectacular, as are all the other areas, tied together with beautiful marble corridors.

“Historical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We went here as part of our trolley tour. It's very nicely done. They offer tours (a guide to tell you about the history). I noticed some rooms for the kids. Great artifacts. It's a worthwhile stop for history buffs. It's right on the Freedom Trail.

“Take a tour to learn fun facts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

If you can't get in a tour, just wander the halls and take a peek inside the house and senate chamber.
