Guided Tours

Effective July 7, 2021, Maryland's State of Emergency has been lifted, and the State House is officially reopened at full capacity.

The State House is open to the public every day from 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., except Christmas and New Years Day. To help make your visit to the Maryland State House more enjoyable, and to provide you with an understanding of its rich and historic past, self-guided tour information is available in the Office of Interpretation on the first floor.

For information about Department of Legislative Services educational tours of the Maryland General Assembly legislative complex for groups only, visit the Visitors Program webpage. Visitors Program group tours are by advance reservation only on weekdays.

The Office of Interpretation is a program of the Maryland State Archives. Specialized curatorial tours of the building and its artwork can be arranged by appointment by calling 410-260-6418.

A number of private tour operators also provide tours of Annapolis and the State House.
