Stepping into the lobby of this gorgeous building is a breathtaking experience -- and a close look and understanding of the flags lining the walls transports one immediately into American history. Whether taking a guided tour (superb and knowledgeable ambassadors of the State House) or a self-guided tour, the accessibility to so many parts of the building is terrific. Sitting... More

When I am traveling, I always enjoy looking at the state capital building. One of my bucket list items is to visit every state capital. New Hampshire is great looking building even under construction.

The oldest state house in U.S. Continuous use. The building is constructed from NH (Granite State) granite with a guided dome. The main lobby is called the Hall of Flags after the display of historic flags from the past 200 years of US history. The building corridors and legislative halls are lined with historic paintings. Good cheap chow in the... More

Beautiful old building and extremely well maintained. We did self guided tour but think they also have guided ones. The floors are built of native granite and you can even see fossils in some of the squares. We saw a trilobite fossil. Allow 3/4 hours and do not miss it.

The Capitol of New Hampshire is a great place to spend a few hours on a weekend, brush up on some names from our Country's history, take a few photos, and then grab a bit to eat at some of the restaurants along Main street (all very good to my knowledge).

I stopped at the Visitor Office and asked if any tours were scheduled. None were, but one of the volunteers, Mary, said she'd be happy to lead a tour - five minutes later, she had ten people from for different groups in tow. Mary was very knowledgeable about the State House and showed us much more than i would have... More

Grounds were very well maintained and enjoyed a Betiful walk after visiting the Saturday morning farm market.

We had a few minutes wait for dinner reservations so we went to the statehouse and sat on the lawn for a bit. It was midweek but still many folks were on the lawn lounging as well. Not as great of a statehouse view right now because the dome is being renovated so there's scaffolding everywhere. But otherwise it's nice.

Even for a self-guided tour, stop at the Visitor Center first for helpful information. Get a look at Representatives Hall from the gallery on the third floor if it's open, and ponder the sheer size of this small state's legislature: 400 representatives and 24 senators, each paid $100 a year. Get a guided tour if you can. For visitors and... More

Best seen when the largest governing body in the land is not in session. Halls are adorned with governor's portrait paintings, flags and multiple artifacts of NH history.
