Received this today from the State House Tour Office. If you’re interested this summer (or anytime), please contact me here and I can work with the office to arrange your visit!


With the summer in full swing and Saturday tours being offered weekly, beginning July 12th, the tour office staff would love to encourage each of you to inform and invite your constituents to take advantage of “the people’s house.” With the newly offered Saturday tours, our office will be able to better accommodate the schedules of all visitors. We have seen a great deal of enthusiastic tourists and South Carolinians thus far and look forward to the upcoming months.

During week days, Monday through Friday, the State House is available to the public between the hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. On these days six guided tours are offered beginning at 9:30 AM, 10:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM, 2:30 PM, and 3:30 PM. On Saturdays, the State House will be available to the public between the hours of 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. On these days five guided tours will be offered beginning at 10:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM, and 2:30 PM. Groups larger than 12 are encouraged to make reservations prior to their tour day to ensure space is available.

The tour office strives to assist you by providing the very best service possible to your constituents. We will happily make tour arrangements for groups from your district. You or a member of your staff needs only to forward us the pertinent contact information. Our guided tours provide a tangible opportunity for constituents to experience the beauty of the State House and gain an appreciation for the lawmaking process.
