As someone from a "big" city, I could not believe that you could walk in and explore with no questions asked. No ID required, no metal detectors, very minimal security presence. This is how government facilities should be if we lived in a world that was safer.

I love visiting the different state houses. I have been to most of them. New Hampshire does not give a tour. They just hand you a trifold pamphlet and send you on your way. The exterior of the building is lovely. It sits right on main street set back with a nice inviting park. There is free 2 hour angled... More

I visited the State House while my wife was in Concord on business.We stayed at the Holiday Inn and the State House is only a five minute walk away. I was surprised that there was no screening at all. Walk in. Walk out. No security check. There were a limited number of exhibits, largely regarding the military. There is a... 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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the NH State House! I loved all of the historical displays throughout the building - really fascinating! Take your time and look at everything! 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
