On a recent Saturday, my husband and I went to Annapolis. The forecast was for thunderstorms, so I was unsure how we were going to spend our time, in a city that is known for outdoor activities. We toured the Maryland State House during one of those storms. There is no guided tour, but the signage is so good, you... More

If you like history and are visiting Annapolis, the state house is a great site to visit. The rooms are well decorated and the exhibits well curated. Lots of great information about the state house's and maryland's history.

Good, relatively brief visit on a very hot day. Unfortunately the ship once displayed in the lobby is no longer there. In spite of that, the kids found everything "really cool". Glad we went.

Great area to stroll and site see. Walk is a little steep but most can handle the climb. Everyone except very elderly shouldn't have a problem. History here is very interesting.

The historical significance of this building in US History is comparable to almost any other building. We wandered the grounds reading all of the signs, then made our way inside to see the "new" annexes built around 1905 (covered in Tiffany glass), followed by the older area which includes the room where George Washington gave his resignation as General of...

We didn't go inside, but walked around the grounds and enjoyed the beautiful landscape. I make my kids read historical and/or government building signs in hope of them appreciating our wonderful nation's treasures. Annapolis is full of history and the State House is a grand building in the heart of the city. Loved it!!

Enjoyed touring this historic building. It is still used today. However they have the original room restored for you to look at. Since the last time we were there they have a newly renovated room where George Washington gave his resignation speech. Here are a couple of rooms for this set up like a museum with lots of interesting things... More

The historical significant's of the Maryland State House as the the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use and the place where George Washington resigned his commission as commander and chief make a docent led visit well worth the time and money.

Stopped in here while walking around. This building was built in the 1700s and is still in use today by the Maryland legislative bodies. George Washington resigned is military commission here. Place is full of historic items. You get the feeling of being transported back in time walking through it.
