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

The New Hampshire State House is unlike any State House anywhere in the world. You really see history and EVERYTHING is completely accessible. Nothing is off limits. You enter with one State Officer at the door, no metal detectors, no one stopping you. In front of you are flags and war mementos stretching through time. The tours take you everywhere,... More

The state is small with a collection of interesting exhibits in the entry area, access to the Senate and House of Representatives, and an entertaining gift shop (the manager -- Virginia -- is a font of information). The shop also has a display of campaign buttons from Presidential elections, The House chamber features large portraits of Washington and Lincoln together... More
