Enjoy a guided tour of the Statehouse, also known as the People’s House, where your group will learn all about history, government, civics, as well as the building’s magnificent architecture. Depending on schedules, they may even get to meet the member of the Ohio House and Senate from their district. When the tour is complete your group can spend some time in the Statehouse Museum.
The guided tour will take your group through the first two floors of the building where they will learn about the building’s history, art, architecture, Ohio history and the workings of the court system. Also included in the tour is the award winning Visitor Education Center, which showcases a permanent exhibit dedicated to the history of the court system in Ohio and the role of the law in our everyday lives. Depending on the day, your group may even get to observe the Supreme Court in Session!
Take a guided tour of one of the most recognizable landmarks in all of sports. The stadium was built in 1922, and underwent a three year face lift that was completed in 2001 for just under $200 million. Nicknamed the “Horseshoe” after its horseshoe shape, the stadium seats close to 105,000 people and is a monument to college football.
History and geology meet to form a one of a kind experience for your group that’s been millions of years in the making. While the 40 minute cave tour is the main attraction, your group will also enjoy the museum, gift shop, gem mining, an 18 hole miniature golf course, and the 50,000 square foot animal encounter where they can see white tailed deer, pygmy goats, and more.
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is home to more than 10,000 animals representing over 600 species around the globe. One day your group may see a giraffe sprint or hear a wolf howl, and the next day they could see a polar bear go for a swim or even witness a kangaroo hop across their path. Every day offers a new chance to get up close with wildlife from around the world.
