Guided Tours of Old Capitol Museum Now Available

The Old Capitol Museum is now offering guided tours of this National Historic Landmark. The free tours can be booked for groups of up to fifteen people Tuesday through Friday, and a standing guided tour will be given every Wednesday at 1:30.

Completed in 1839, the Old Capitol is Jackson’s oldest building. It has recently undergone a complete restoration that returned the exterior and interior to their nineteenth-century appearances. The museum explores the distinguished history of the building and the events that have taken place in it.

Tour participants will learn about the purpose behind the wrought iron fence and changes to the exterior of the building, the relationship between the design of the building and Jacksonian democracy, alterations made in the House Chamber to accommodate our growing government during the nineteenth century, and more.

To schedule a tour, call 601-576-6920.
