Beautiful state building with a deeply rich history. Fun to stand alongside the sculpture of George Washington where he stood to resign his commission. Takes about 45 minutes to visit the chambers, which are beautiful. Cannot go upstairs, roped off. Street metered parking nearby, in the hear of historic downtown. Well-worth stopping by, you will pass thru security check to... More

The surrounding area of the Maryland State house is absolutely beautiful and steeped rich in history. The grounds itself are well manicured, and pristine. There is the old treasury building that was undergoing renovations, and we were unable to see the inside, but that was minor. We did have to give our photo ID to an officer and go through... More

I'm nearly done with my quest to visit all of the state capitols. The Maryland State House was nice--but not nearly as impressive or interesting as most of the other ones in the country. It's quite small. Both the House of Representatives and Senate chambers were accessible. Photography with a tripod was permitted. The rotunda area doesn't stand up to... More

This was probably my favorite visit of my day trip to Annapolis. I love history, and the Maryland State House has plenty to go around. It was interesting to see the current senate and house chambers. Even cooler is the old areas that are now open for historical interpretation. Worth a visit for sure!

If you are over 18 BRING YOUR ID. They check your id when they scan your belongings. Totally cool statehouse, small but beautiful. We learned that Washington retired his commission in the building, they have a short video explaining this important moment in history.

I did a self guided tour of this beautiful building. I read all of the plaques and learned a little about the state house's history and restoration. Nobody offered information about guided tours, although I thought that would have been helpful.

Not only is this a beautiful building, but it has so much to offer in historic value. On top of all the lovely rooms to see, the Old Senate Room where George Washington resigned his commission as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army is finally open. What a wonderful site with videos detailing the history, portraits of important citizens... More

First time here - loved the tiffany skylight! Saw the old part and how it was added onto.Liked the display of pictures on what the upper cupola was like inside.

I was really glad I got a chance to see the state house, a place with so much historic importance. However, it has been under construction/renovation even past it's promised re-opening date and I wasn't able to see some of the most important paintings. The way it is closed off to visitors means that you can't see many of the... More

Don't pass up the chance to walk the grounds and visit a great landmark of history. Time to reflect and see the US in the early days. Be sure to bring ID to enter.
