Tours of the Pennsylvania Capitol Building

 

This year PPA was able to book large group tours for 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. As space on these group tours is limited those interested should email Jeff Stuby at jstuby@papharmacists.com to sign up.

 

If you're unable to make it for either of the group tours you can still see what President Theodore Roosevelt called "the handsomest building" he ever saw. Tour guides offer tours every half hour from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. Simply go to the Visitors Desk in the Main Capitol Rotunda to explore joining a tour.
