AAA Editor Notes
Columbus Architecture Tours depart from the visitor center at 506 Fifth St. Two-hour guided bus tours, which begin with a 12-minute video, allow passengers to experience the rich architectural diversity of Columbus. The tours provide an overview of much of the city and include interior views of two buildings. A 90-minute guided tour of the Eero Saarinen-designed Miller House and Garden and an hour-long downtown walking tour, which includes a visit to philanthropist J. Irwin Miller's personal office, also are available.

If you'd prefer to admire Columbus' mod structures and public art at your own pace, opt for a self-guiding walking tour; maps can be purchased at the visitor center. If you're detail-oriented, purchase a set of “keepsake cards” to use with your cellphone. At each of the 11 stops along the cellphone tour, you can access a recorded message describing the architectural highlight.
