Trip Advisor prettiest state house I have ever visited
Jul 11, 2014 by: Elias David B from 
Parking is never fun in Annapolis but this intricate wooden tower is beautiful. We enjoy the statehouse more than the rest of the town. Consider visiting the US Naval Academy, or the renaissance festival on the same day.

Trip Advisor nice state house

It is a very nice, state house. When you enter, they scan your purse and such, like happens at all government facilities nowadays but when you walk in, it is really nice. Very clean with this whole House of Cards air on the stairs and hallways. They have some interesting historical documents and memorabilia in one small room and you can see the House and Senate rooms. Overall, definitely worth a walk thru. I wouldn't plan on spending more than 30 mins max but neat to see.

Trip Advisor Oldest state capitol still in continuous use

We walked up the hill to the grounds of the Maryland State House. The grounds are beautiful and open for walking all around the building. For history lovers, this place is an A+++++++++++. We went inside (go through security), but it is free, and you can walk around on your own and read the informative placards. This historical building is the oldest state capitol still in continuous use and is designated as a National Historic Landmark. You can look into both the house and senate chambers and wander around at your leisure....helpful when you are reading all of the interesting material. We also learned that it has the largest wooden dome in the US constructed without nails (used wooden pegs) and the only state house to have served as the nation's capital. Very interesting! If you like history, there is a lot to absorb here. I loved it!

Trip Advisor The best state Capitol building in the US.

The oldest wooden rotunda still in service and was also briefly our nations Capitol. I did not find allot to see except the grounds and the room where Washington resigned his commission. But I have a great affection for the building. It is a sight to see because it centered on all of the old harbor and can be seen from almost every point.

The buildings are great to look at and learn about. A tour is useful. Adventure tours was very nice, a large golf cart type vehicle, but better, was able to take us places larger trollies could not go,
