We've been staying in Concord as part of our trip around New England. The state house building is nice but it's small, not that interesting. We've been here several months and hate Concord. Unprofessional people, terrible drivers that don't know who to read stop lights or road signs, we've seen a lot of people that seem like they do drugs.... More

Go to the visitors center and Virginia and Debbie will take good care of you. Civil war battlefield flags, lots of vaults, tons of art, lots of history. Time well spent. Very accessible for the general public, amazingly so.

The House and Senate rooms were very pretty with interesting galleries/balconies. We spent a lot of time here looking at all of the historical artifacts on display. We asked the... More

There's a lot of history in this building and helpful people to answer questions if needed. I also found the person working at the gift shop to be pleasant with a nice sense of humor.

This was my stop for New Hampshire on my 50 state tour. I learned that is the oldest legislative chamber still in use during the tour. There was an interesting collection of flags in the lobby that has United State history and New Hampshire history.

Like to visit the state houses as I travel to different states. I like ones like this where it is right in the heart of the city. Beautiful Capitol. A lot of history here along with library across street.

Easy access and a friendly, easy entrance with parking close by makes this State House a pleasure to visit. An American eagle statue sits atop the capitol building 118 feet above the ground. Its dome is small and more of a cupola placed on top of the building rather than what you may consider a dome compared with other capitol... More

I made a visit here out of interest having worked in political government at both local and national levels. Very interesting and open, welcoming and happy to provide information.
