Excellent state capital! Unusual shape and architecture. The tours include a lot of art from NM residents and so is different and interesting if you are into touring state capital buildings. (I am). People are friendly and helpful.

We couldn't believe we were allowed to self tour the capital building! We walked through the Senate and House chambers. Hundreds of New Mexico art displayed. DO NOT miss the buffalo on September and level.

Some of our party like to visit all capitol buildings, so we went. But were we surprised! It was like an art museum for free. I suggest starting at the top at the governor's office and work your way down. The governor's receptionist was very friendly. We spent about two hours and could have spent more. The building itself is... More

Don't miss this! Three floors of wonderful local art from current to early 1900's, free and open to the public.

Who would expect to find a fabulous art collection in a government building! That is exactly what is found in the New Mexico State Capitol. Don't miss this unexpected stop on a tour of Santa Fe. The building itself is beautiful, the grounds nicely landscaped and the collection inside and out well worth a visit. And it is free!

Amazing collection of art work that you can see at your own pace. Very informative and well done. I would go back again and again to try to see it all.

No trip to Santa Fe is complete without a visit to this exceptional collection of New Mexico art on the second and third levels of this people-friendly government building. Every wall surface around the rotunda, and up and down the hallways, are covered with excellent artistic pieces. It is a comfortable venue to read about the pieces and reflect upon... More

We visited the state capitol and were warmly welcomed as we made our entrance. We were invited to look at all of the beautiful art that was on display. Free parking was available across the street in a parking garage, and we were even permitted to stay in the parking area once the building closed for the day. The New... More

We happened to walk in when a free guided tour was starting. We had a great guide who could answer any question. You get to sit in the area where the lawmakers work. The guide highlights some of the most interesting work. You can also tour the place on your own, but the guided tour is far more interesting.
