Our visit to the Maryland State House was part of a walking tour (Colonial Tours of Annapolis) so we didn't spend as much time inside as we would on our own, but having a guide provided us with the benefit of hitting the highlights and...More

Did you know that this was the US Capitol at some point. Stand where George Washington stood along with others who were signers of the Declaration of Independence.

This was a very interesting location to visit and had relevance to George Washington as he resigned his commission here. A cool (literally) location to to stop in on a hot day. No admission charge, but security protocol in place with metal detection at the...More

Lovely grounds, beautiful building, and interesting historical area. Accessing the state house is easy (easy to drive to and enter/take a tour), but parking isn't so easy. I guess that's to be expected, though. Still, a nice stop if you're in the area, or even...More

I stopped by the State House with my family in June. We ended up spending about an hour here. You can see the room where Washington resigned his commission and learn all about the event. It was quite a neat experience; if you find yourself...More

I enjoyed the exhibits and the information provided. Both the Senate and House rooms were open to see into.

Even if you are not a history buff, Maryland State House offers fascinating accounts of the birth of our nation. Free admission and self tours of wonderful displays explaining US history. Worth the stop even for 30 minutes.

The one, and only, thing I did not like about the state house is the signage approaching the entrance. There was none. We old folk had to walk around the entire building to find it. However, it was worth it. Even the quaint claustrophobic elevator...More
