What a relief to walk into ANY seat of government and NOT being accosted by metal detectors, ID scans or security harassment. This really is the People's House. And you even stand a good chance of casually running into the Governor in the hall (as well as any number of legislators). My daughter and I found ourselves being gently asked... More

NH is all about politics and you can see some of it here. Do not like looking at the portraits on the wall...one old white guy after another but then that is our history.

Our 4th grade class trip was guided by the visitors board chair and helped by our State Representatives and Senators. Our representatives are very friendly. Anyone can walk in and look around. The visitors center has nice displays on New Hampshire history and Presidential primary history. The lobby has a large collection of battle flags and even a New Hampshire... More

Who would have expected such an excellent presentation in a State Capital. Amazed that they allow lawmakers to actually carry concealed, but it is New Hampshire. Lots of history in the building.

Walk in and you are quickly aware of the "history" present. The display bon the left side of the Lobby is well worth the visit.

Wouldn't take a detour but if you are close-by it is worth visiting because of its history. Not much else around.

Easy access, on street parking available. Great visit, saw the chambers for both houses of legislature. Don't miss the office where the candidates must go to register for the New hampshire presidential primary. Not a big building but very interesting.

Our visit was on a Sunday; therefore, the building was closed. Grounds are well kept. Several statues of prominent historic individuals are on the grounds. Excellent day for photos of the bldg. Most businesses around the square were closed, but we found a neat coffee shop from which we could continue to view the building. Whenever we are near a... More

Was in the building for some meetings, and my colleague and I walked around the building afterward. For a small state house, it has a lot of charm and history, and the visitors' center/gift shop was fun. You won't spend hours here, but for a short visit it is a fun stop.

Be sure to visit the gift shop and enjoy the many huge portraits on the walls. The chambers are also worth a look on the upper floor. I enjoyed seeing the accessibility of the governor and others - it offers a feel of what government was many decades ago before politicians went off to a world all their own.
