OFFICE OF CURATORIAL SERVICES
The State of New Hampshire owns many objects important to our history, including portraits, paintings, sculptures and other works of art. The Office of Curatorial Services is part of the DNCR and is charged with the identification, evaluation, protection and interpretation of objects of historical significance, as outlined in RSA 227-C:1.
You can view some of this important collection by taking a virtual tour of the New Hampshire State House.
