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

We were going to do the self-guided tour, but a tour with a 4th grade class was just beginning, and they invited us to join them. Being retired teachers, we happily accepted. The advantage was the tour guide really explained the Hall of Flags, Senate and representative chambers. She even walked us through an executive council meeting and the governor... More

We spent a 2,5 hours visiting the New Hampshire State House, and we really very enjoyed our visit. We were very surprised how easy and simple it is to go there. The staff in this place was very friendly and welcoming. The architecture is beautiful, as is the interior of the building. We especially enjoyed seating on the visitor's balcony.

Concord is truly quite the lovely friendly town. The people (well most anyway) were helpful kind & considerate. The State House was very interesting & informative, somewhere that would be quite grand to take children over the age of 10years.

Beautiful and well-maintained, the NH State House may surprise you by how easy and simple it is to drop in . . . and how graciously the working staff accept wandering tourists throughout the historic building. Plenty of literature helps to guide you around - and a real architectural feast (I was surprised by the hanging lamps in the Senate... More

Simplistic and a part of history which is nice to see. Liked the senate and house chambers. Excellent condition. A lot of portraits. Needs more on what was added for the 2 additions.. Nice hall of flags.

My visit to the state capital far exceeded my expectations in that the inside of this building is worthy of a visit to see the beautiful architecture, the huge portraits of past political figures and lots of history readings.

We spent a couple of hours visiting the Capitol building in Concord, and everyone we met in the place was very friendly and welcoming. The architecture outside is beautiful, as is the interior of the building. I especially enjoyed seeing the battle flags carried by troops from New Hampshire during the Civil War. FYI: This is the oldest capitol building... More

we were touring in the area and decided to see this state capital and certainly enjoyed the visit. There are no conducted tours, but they provide you the information for self guided tour.
