Trip Advisor See it from the INside for a change!
Dec 16, 2014 by: SailOnTommy from Centreville, Maryland
As a sailor, I spent years navigating the waters of the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay - often using the Maryland State House as a point of reference. Then one year, we elected to take a tour and realized what we'd been missing. As the only State House that once served as the Capitol of the United States, it's well maintained, features lots of new and tons of old and preserves the architecture and atmosphere of the 18th Century.

Trip Advisor Excellent historic place to see

The place is situated prominently in the middle of the city and worth walking around to see or read about it but there in no place to park just a short period to take photos. It is quite a distance to walk from the harbor parking area.

Trip Advisor Quaint setting, limited tour

As a part of my see-all-the-captiols plan, I got a chance to visit the Maryland State House in December, 2014. It's a beautiful, historic building in a historic and quaint setting. I had hoped for a brief guided tour, but none was available. And unfortunately, most of the rooms were closed off. Bad timing on my part, I suppose. The former Senate room was blocked off for renovations, and the two historic meeting rooms/library were closed for meetings. One of the current legislative chambers was closed as well, since they were conducting an orientation for the new legislators. The historic treasury on site was also under renovation... or maybe just being used as a storage facility. All that said, perhaps check in with them to see what's available to see. It's a great place to visit, and surrounded by such fantastic shops and streets.

Trip Advisor the capital

This place is packed with history!! This is where early America was governed. If your any kind of history buff, you need to go here.

This is a wonderful walk up a gradual hill from the town square, you walk around the circle the Capitol sits on enjoying the views all around it is beautiful.
