Description

The unique relationship between the Old South Meeting House and Old State House creates a rich and dynamic story that speaks to the heart of urgent questions about self-government, free speech, and the role of civic engagement in a free society. Constructed in 1713, the Old State House was the center of royal government in the Massachusetts Bay colony and the focal point for many of the Revolution's most dramatic events, including the Boston Massacre. Built in 1729, the Old South Meeting House was the largest building in colonial Boston and the site of the most stirring mass meetings that led to the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution. Today, these historic sites and museums—located just two blocks from each other in the heart of downtown Boston—provide thought-provoking exhibits, compelling walking tours, exciting educational offerings, and engaging public programs. Visit both museums for one price. This ticket is good for entry at Revolutionary Spaces’ two historic sites: Old State House (206 Washington St.) and Old South Meeting House (310 Washington St.), and all exhibits and gallery talks available therein. Each site is only a three-minute walk from each-other. Both attractions are open daily between 10 AM and 5 PM with periodic closures around the holidays or for special events. Be part of the story by donating (at checkout). Help change the way public history is experienced in Boston and beyond. With your support, Revolutionary Spaces can create dynamic programs and exhibitions that advance our understanding of our revolutionary past and continue the vital practice of democracy for all.
