Virtual Tour Presentations

Let our State House educators be your guide through one of the oldest capitols in the country. Using an interactive PowerPoint presentation, we’ll explore the State House’s history and architecture while introducing students to the legislative process, state symbols, how a bill becomes a law and the citizen’s role in government. Both our K-2nd grade symbols tour and 3rd-12th grade State House Tour are offered as virtual programs.

Call 609-847-3150 or email NJ State House Tours to schedule your virtual presentation today!
