The inside of the building is very building as is the history surrounding it as they have recently found a foundry underground there. Worth visiting.
The exterior is a bit of a mishmash - the building was built and rebuilt over the 200+ years it has been in use - but the triple deck central rotunda is very elegant and was restored in 1999. The free tours are pretty interesting; you can NOT walk around the building unescorted.

Tours are given on the hour and it's informative. World War II Memorial is across the street. Don't venture too far from the downtown area.

Recently visited the NJ State House on a quest to visit all 50 the US capitals. Hard to see the gold dome from many places close-up except across the river from PA. I always pose in front of beautiful gold domes, etc., but Jersey's just isn't viewable from up close. The original State House building is very old and it... More
