“Small, but Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

There isn't much here, but what is here is nice. The highlight is definitely the recreation of the old state assembly meeting room. There might have been more upstairs, but it was roped off so it was hard to tell. This probably isn't any more than a 15 minute stop.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Although it's small, it's full of interesting information about the War of 1812. A must see place in Annapolis.

“Charming and historic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I've been here twice, and consider it a must-see while you're in Annapolis. It is not one of these gargantuan 19th century capitol buildings that are so daunting to visit. It is very VERY small, and is colonial. Annapolis was the capital of our country for a brief time early on, so this building was THE Capitol. It is so pretty, and the recent renovation really did work out very well. Every detail is lovely. The first time I went, there were guided tours, but it looks like they've done away with those. Funding cutbacks, no doubt - ya gets what ya pays for. However, the posted information is good, and the day I was there, the guard at the door was helpful with answering every question and even adding a little more detail than I expected. There's really no excuse for not at least walking through this beautiful, historic building, as it is right in the heart of Annapolis, AND, it is FREE.

“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Chock full of history at a very manageable size. George Washington resigned his commission here. The area is walkable, close to the Naval Academy and other sites, as well as shopping and restaurants.

“The State House is beautiful”

We had no idea that the State House would be so beautiful and impressive. We are very proud of being Marylanders....
