Over 6 million dollars worth of art by New Mexican, beautifully displayed. Definitely worth the visit.

It's a two-story building and as you might expect from the name it's designed in a circular fashion. There are art galleries on both floors that can sometimes have interesting exhibits. It resembles more of a modern business building than what you'd expect from the oldest state capital in the country. The sculptures outside the building are the most interesting... More

We spent several hours walking through the extensive art collection on three floors. The art work is varied and the accompanying information about the artists gives a real sense of place. The displays rival any high quality museum and their curator deserves kudos. Everyone we met working there was very friendly and seemed happy to have visitors to their lovely... More

Loved the roundhouse capitol building in Santa Fe. The art is magnificent! The staff was very helpful too. It doesn't take long to see - take an hour and experience the heart & soul of New Mexico.

This is a fabulous place. Effecxtively it's an Art Gallery in the seat of government for New Mexico. The staff welcome you warmly - it's entirely free - and they have THE most stunning collection of 20th and 21st century art from New Mexico, displayed in a gorgeous building. The day we were there - wandering round this fantastic collection... More

Whenever we are in a state capitol city, we always take a tour of the state capitol building. They usually tower over the surrounding areas with their distinctive white domes. This one was much harder to find but we eventually did. Lots of New Mexico art throughout the building.

Interesting stop for a few minutes. I believe this one of the only round capitol buildings in the USA and it was a quick stop on our walking tour of Santa Fe.
