Amazing that this building is still in use all this time. Great little slice of history and actually a very pretty building.

We were on a guided tour and found it fun and informative to visit our state capital. There is a security check point but not a big deal. I think having a guide you would get more out of teh visit although there are signs explaining what each room is. It is not very big so this is a short... More

Maryland State House is loaded with history from the founding of the United States of America. It may be the oldest continuously used State House in the US. Marvelous Colonial architecture. The original has been made a museum. Worth visiting if you are a United States Revolutionary War and founding of the US buff.

You can also tour the Governor Mansion if you call ahead, a must see. The State house is like no other and it is free.

The Maryland State House can be seen as you enter Annapolis and the dome can be seen from Annapolis Harbor. It was built in 1772 and is the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use. The offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, and the Maryland General Assembly are housed there. Beautiful building and an important part of American history.

The Maryland State Capital is worth the visit. The tour is self guided and my friend and I walked through all the public accessible spaces in about 30 minutes; only the first floor is available to the public. There are placards placed throughout the floor giving a more detailed history of the building. The location is spectacular right in the... More

We were on a business trip in May and driving through on our way to Washington DC. Reaching historic Annapolis was like being on a movie set. The State House and grounds were beautiful. We had to circle around for parking which allowed us to see the brick or cobblestone streets and the older building and houses. I must say... More
