How can the public access the State House?

As part of ongoing security improvements to Indiana Government Center, effective June 4, 2007:

All State House visitors will be required to use one of two public entrances to access the Capitol building:


The upper level east entrance, near Capitol Ave. and Market St., and the lower level west entrance (ADA compliant), accessible via the Robert D. Orr Plaza. These entrances will be equipped with metal detectors and screening devices that will be monitored by Indiana State Police Capitol Police.


A third entrance, located on the upper level of the building’s south side, will also be outfitted with security equipment and may be used to accommodate large crowds as needed.


Those with pacemakers, defibrillators or other medical devices need to first notify the Indiana State Police Capitol Police officers staffing the entrance. A search will be conducted with a hand-held metal detector.
