Connecticut's Old State House
CT's Old State House
A National Historic Landmark, Connecticut’s Old State House was once a state capitol building where citizens and all three branches of government debated matters of state and national importance for over 80 years. Now serving as one of the Constitution State’s most historically-significant museums, it carries on the tradition of civil discourse through programming, events, tours, exhibits and sponsorship of Connecticut History Day.

It is the mission of Connecticut’s Old State House to reawaken civic engagement and awareness through authentic, educational and inspiring visitor experiences; to serve as a classroom – for the physical and virtual worlds – to teach citizenship not just from the standpoint of the past but for today as well; and to be a laboratory where people of all ages can interact and discover that their voices matter, and that words, ideas, persuasion and debate really can change minds – and quite possibly, the world.
