Just a wonderful place to bring young folks to actually LEARN how our Govt works, and sometimes doesn't. Being able to see everything in action is a tradition I hope never changes. Staff are always great even with the challenges of today's world they are super, and the building is steeped with thought provoking icons of our country's beginning. Nice... More

Beautiful building exterior and interior, with a recently restored golden dome. Located in an elegant section of downtown Concord, the state house and its grounds are the pride of all New Hampshire citizens.

I visit the state house every other year with my 4th and 5th grade students, but the state house is open to the public all the time. This summer, they gave guided tours, but I'm not sure if they are still doing that. In the lobby area, there are flags from all the different wars. The grass area around the... More

The NH Legislature is the third largest democratic body in the world, only behind the US House of Representatives and the British House of Commons. The 400 reps and 24 Senators still meet in the original chambers - a record in the U.S. In the statehouse, tours are offered and it features the Hall of Flags - very old flags... More

This is a place I always take international and local visitors. It is the only state capital that you can walk into, tour and meet some of the most important people in our state by just being there. People come from all over the world to check out our Executive Counsel and go back to their country to try to... More

We visited with our granddaughter and were pleasantly surprised by meeting the governor passing in one of he corridors. She agreed to pictures and was extremely friendly. The place is full of history dating back to revolutionary war. So many portraits on the walls tell of the rich New Hampshire history.

I visited the NH capital while in town for business. It is small compared to those of other states (like NH itself) but if quite nice. Parking can be a problem, though.

One of the oldest state houses in the US, this place is stately and beautiful. Located in a large plaza in downtown Concord, we went on a Sunday, the dome of the Capitol was under repair and hence the scaffolding in the photos, The grounds are spotless and well-maintained. We were there early in the morning and and enjoying walking... More

I had never been to the NH capitol so I decided to try it one afternoon. What an amazing building. You can pretty much do a self guided tour in just about all of the areas. The most impressive thing is the extensive collection of original flags from all of the war campaigns. Outstanding ! Personnel at the capitol were... More

The state house is located on Main Street in Concord. It's a small building and the dome has been restored-you can see the dome from further away. I went with a group and we had a tour guide who was really wonderful. The entry hall is ringed with very old battle flags-some from the civil war, WWI WW II, and... More

Thank you for your review! Just wanted to clarify that the legislators actually earn $200 for their 2 year term, so it is actually $100 a year! Glad you had a positive experience! More
