The state owned collection of art is worth a trip here. You will not se another Capitol building like this.

We had to park at meters on the back side because there was no parking available near the main entrance but otherwise no problems. We walked around for over an hour looking at the artwork from New Mexican artists. Very nice. Good information desk.

We were here in September. When we entered, there is a reception desk where a very nice woman gave us a pamphlet and description of where we could go. You can pretty much go on each floor, look in the house and senate chambers and view all the excellent southwestern artwork on each floor. Don't miss the buffalo head on... More

Used the capital building as a pit stop on a tour of Santa Fe. The restrooms were very clean. The art work on the walls was also worth the visit. Our tour guide told us, "In New Mexico, if you don't know what something is, it's art." Toured both chambers, but both were undergoing some sort of renovation. Work in... More

If you cannot adjust to the adobe buildings...vintage and new. visit the Capitol. Stimulating architecture using local materials. Seated on a wee hills with a lawn rolling to the street. Do ask about the many people from NM that died on the Bantan Death March in the Philipines in 1942.

The State Capitol building is well worth taking the time to visit. Local art work is displayed everywhere and is breathtaking. During our visit, they also had a display of Santa Fe schoolchildren's art work. The Office of the Governor is very welcoming and we were given an opportunity to look inside the assembly.

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
