“Very interesting self guided tour.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Enter and grab the self guided tour brochure, and you are on your way...
It will take you about an half hour to visit, taking your time, looking at the many many portraits in every hallways, the civil war flags in the entrance hall, also seeing the senate and house chambers... the oldest original chambers in the country where the representatives still hold there sessions, and other rooms open to the public.
Outside, the building looks great with its golden dome. On the front lawn, there is a nice statue of the legendary General John Stark, famous for the battles of Bunker Hill (Boston) and Bennington (VT) during the Revolutionary war.
The NH State Capitol is really worth a visit !

“Proud Capitol”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

The historic displays inside were the best part. The building itself is interesting and the hustle of state craft interesting.

“The Real Deal”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Wander the capitol building; so many amazing paintings and rooms the Senate CHambers esp.); the Hall of Flags is interesting for everybody. The legislature is large and unwieldy and puts on quite a show if you arrive on a session day. There is a legislative cafeteria in the basement where you can people watch over a coffee. Even if you don't see the 4th largest body in the world haranguing each other, you will enjoy the quirks of this great old building and all its history. The landscaping -- trees that were gifts of the Japanese for an important treaty negotiation, sculpture, arches, lilacs, benches, monuments, and lawn are pleasant.
