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

Beautiful setting and a historical gem. The grounds are well maintained, and the venue provides a great look into times past. Well worth a visit!

We took the self guided tour and it was excellent at telling us about New Hampshire's history and it was no surprise why the election season starts out here! Beautiful art throughout. Had a great photo depicting a Civil War battle that you see as you walk down some stairs. You can walk into both house and senate chambers. People... More

Read most of reviews, most on point. Small state capital, you are free to roam, lots of historic artwork and flag display. Try to take small 1/2 hour tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and was glad to answer all our questions about the building as well as the city. Metered parking all around building.

This was not the grandest stet capitol we have ever visited but it is one of the most open. Just walk in and take the self guided tour at your convenience. Don't miss the representatives side where the whole room is filled with chairs. You can't walk to the dome but can get some good pictures from the inside opposite... More

NH state house is a nice place to stop and walk through in an hours time. Lots of great artwork and history to go with the artwork as well as a chance to see the inner workings of the state house. We were fortunate to have a state representative talk to us while we were walking through and he gave... More

No charge & self guided.... just walk around to see an amazing array of historic state paintings, drawings, maps & portraits. Lots of militaria, as well, from the Revolutionary War & the War Between the States. Make sure to eat lunch way down in the basement at the fantastic Greek cafe. Most citizens don't even know it is there but... More

Nice to visit and see democracy in action from the visitors' galleries. A lot of history is available and I believe guided tours can be arrange on request. Good coffee shop with tasty cookies across the street. Street parking on meters is convenient and not expensive.

A great experience and a beautiful historical building on Main Street in Concord. Spent the day attending the Democratic Caucus and the House in session. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Store is in the NH State House. There you can buy NH Gifts and run into politicians, even the Governor. If you need a NH Item its the place to go
