Can't believe we'd never toured the Roundhouse before on trips to Santa Fe. Legislature was not in session but you can tour all floors of the building at your leisure. And no fee. There is a great abundance of art, especially on the second floor. New Mexico, Native American and Western art as well as modern pieces. The building was... More

The State House is a beautiful building with an extraordinary art collection of Indian, Anglo, and Hispanic artists. It deserves at least 4 hours to just walk through the art. The temporary exhibits alone are worth teh visit, but there is a vast permanent collection.

We only had time late in the afternoon to find a parking place and walk about the beautiful grounds and see the capitol. Took our pictures for our quest to see every state capitol. Impressed that the architecture is not the typical golden domed palace appearance. Relaxed roundhouse.

The New Mexico Capitol have a nice collection of art from local artists. As a public building one can walk its halls and enjoy the art. It's an eclectic collection of styles and media.

It was a rainy afternoon and we had read about the art collection in the state capitol, so we ducked in here for a respite. This was a really lucky decision because this is the best collection of art that you could ever want to see! Wander around the first and second floors of the building and you see a... More

The capitol building is a virtual art gallery, featuring the works of New Mexican artists. There is usually a fantastic exhibit on the first floor. Don't miss it.

We've been to several state capitols, so we were excited to explore another one. Although there was no activity in the building on the day we visited, it was still fun to stop by. There were no tours available, but we were able to explore the building, check out the numerous paintings and artwork, and even go in the house... More
