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

Unlike many states and the federal government, New Hampshire allows visitors to its state capitol wander through the building, getting close to the legislative chambers and the offices of the governor and other senior state officials. You can actually park on the same block for 75 cents an hour (2 hour maximum), or park at a nearby lot if you... More

Sorry, we have visited a number of state houses across the United States and this one's exterior was rather plain and ordinary. The dome has recently undergone renovation as there is scaffolding along the base of the dome. The grounds are simply landscaped with grass, a few trees and a couple of statues of important historical figures. Unfortunately, we can't... More

This is a pretty small Capitol. Visited on a Friday and you do your own walk about with a guide map. You must pay to park (75 cents an hour by meter). I did the map and the surrounding grounds in less than an hour.

Easy to find and get to, visiting this capitol building is a nice stroll through early American history. A self guided tour is sufficient.

Since there was nobody available to do a guided tour, we did a self-tour, which was informative, but probably not as much as a guided tour would have been. The staff member in the visitor center was very helpful and was proud to tell us all of New Hampshire's firsts. On street parking for $0.75 per hour was available right... More
