We really enjoyed the art in the State Capitol, as well as the architecture. We even enjoyed stopping into the Senate and House chambers. We had a private tour (offered free upon request) which helped point out some of the more important artwork. A very nice, FREE museum!!

We visited the Roundhouse as part of a walking tour led by Jerry Rightman that leaves from the Sage Inn. It was a Saturday morning, and we walked right in and wandered the halls without the least interference from the minimal staff on duty. There is a wonderful collection of visual art, and Jerry gave us a history of New... More

The Capitol art display is amazing (primarily Native American and Western art). The art is open to the public on floors 2 and 3. The parking is free in the Capitol parking lot. Enjoy!

By sheer dumb luck we decided to visit the State Capitol on the first day of the 2015 legislative session and arrived just before the Senate was being called in. We were astounded that there was zero security entering the building. No metal detectors, no one inspecting purses and backpacks. In fact there was a rowdy gathering of teachers just... More

This was my first time stepping foot into a state capitol and I was pleasantly surprised. Inside the capitol is beautiful as there is artwork. We walked in all the public areas of the capitol and it was interesting to see where state officials conduct business. There is free parking to visit the capitol (across the street). We visited for... More

Don't bother with the museum of fine arts, there is so little there. if you want to see a lot of beautiful southwest art, this is the place to go.

Be sure to take in the wonderful art exhibit on the 2nd & 3rd floor! Legislature was not back in session, so we took a leisurely stroll throughout the building.

Amazing collection of art; so much it was hard to see it all. The Capital building is beautiful itself, as are the grounds. Even the lighting and seating alcoves are pleasing.

Was a quiet day in the roundhouse giving you a chance to wander around. The artwork on the wall is worth the trip alone. The staff was all very friendly trying see if they can help you. The uniqueness of the building will impress you.

This is a very open, modern and laid back capitol building. The architecture and art are the main reasons for visiting. Of course, if you are trying to visit all of the state capitols, that works too. This building is an easy walk from the rest of historic old town Santa Fe.
