The Maryland State House once served as the nation’s capital, and it was during this time that George Washington resigned as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and the Revolution War was ended — a monumental moment in history. Today, the Maryland State Capitol is still in use, with the Maryland General Assembly meeting here three times per year. When they’re not, families can visit for self-guided tours. The property itself is also worth a stroll, with cobblestoned walkways and beautiful gardens.
The Maryland State Capitol is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Reservations are not required.
Admission is free.
