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.

The term Roundhouse may be related to the different architecture for state capitol. I went to this building to learn about New Mexico and I liked the artwork, paintings, wood art...

The hallways of this small state capitol are covered with varied works of art, most dealing directly with subjects of the state, otherwise with ties from the artist with New Mexico. Unlike other state capitols, it has a very laid back feeling. See the second, third and fourth floors. If you have time, there is also a tunnel/hallway connecting the... More

We lovingly call it the Round House because this State Capitol Building is round, located in the corner of Paseo de Peralta and Old Santa Fe Trail...10 -13 minute walk from the Santa Fe Plaza going south. Don't miss visiting the 4th floor Governor's ART Gallery. The State Capitol grounds are maintained meticulously by local citizens...it is surrounded by the... More

Lots of art to see. Check one off if doing capitols. Nice drive up and back Albuquerque. Make time to see historic square.

We read about all of the art that was in the capital building and it was free to look at. We stopped at the state tourist information (across the street) and were told it was lovely but no real public parking. So, dropped my two passengers off (one handicapped) and parked across the street. Took a few minutes and two... More
