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

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.
