The State House is a beautiful architectural and historic building. The State Legislature meets in this building and you can see the Maryland House and Senate chambers. The original chambers were restored and are magnificent. Original portraits of the Maryland founders are on display.

We enjoyed the educational exhibits. Stand near Geroge Washington in the room where he resigned as commander-in-cheif. Self guided tour.

Great visit to the state house, free self guided tour. If house and senate are not in session you can peek into those chambers also. Security staff is very cordial and friendly. Nice to walk the State Circle are too.

Great place to visit. Learned things about US history that I didn't know. There was a docent present when we were there.

We really enjoyed the exhibits covering the history of the building and some influential citizens of Maryland. It is free to enter and even with close reading takes no more than an hour to tour, but in my mind it is a must see.
