Don't miss this historic State House
Mar 30, 2015 by: 30POP from Annapolis, Maryland
There's a lot of history here. It's the only state capitol to have served as the capitol of the US and one of the oldest state capitols in the US. George Washington resigned his commission from the Army here. It's not huge, so you don't need a lot of time to visit. If you come while the legislature is in session, you can sit in the balcony and watch the action. Be sure you and everyone with you had a photo ID, as they won't let you in without one. It's a short walk from here to the city dock, another of the must-see parts of Annapolis.
A quick stroll through, but very interesting

You can walk around in a few minutes with kids, the rooms are interesting, we loved the Tiffany ceiling windows in both rooms. The kids enjoyed talking to the in uniformed guide. With older kids you can probably listen into a session from the publicly open observance seats. It was a nice walk around the little brick pathways around the building.
Interesting to see the "old" rooms; not a whole lot to see though

They need better air conditioning or more fans! It wasn't all that hot of a day when we visited in September, but it was really hot inside. Educational and interesting to see the "old" desks and such. Just too hot to stay for very long. Much nice just sitting outside on a bench!
Stop in here!

Had to go through metal detector which went off but figured out what caused it and was ok. Enjoyed touring this old but well kept and still in use historic building. Julie was our guide who answered our questions, took time to point out interesting details and informed us of historical facts of the area, very informative tour and such a beautiful building inside and outside, thank you!

Free 5/10 self tour. Only 4 min from The Naval Academy. Oldest/biggest wooden dome of its kind in the US. It was pieced together no nails.
