The building was closed to everyone except employees/personnel when we visited, but we were able to enjoy the exterior during our walk around downtown Santa Fe. The capitol building is the only round one in the US, modeled to suggest the sun symbol (also on the state flag). We were able to walk all the way around the exterior and enjoyed the chance to see the unusual architecture.

We wandered in and around this unusual State Capital building. The Legislature was in session so it was bustling inside. The design fits the area well, and large legislative chambers are always interesting to peak at, however there isn't much for a tourist to see or do inside. Worth a 30 minute look.

AAA Guidebook stated there was a permanent collection of art created by New Mexicans..and we had some time in our schedule. It was better than expected. First There was a temporary exhibit entitled Out of the Blue, featuring contemporary fiber art, that opened days before our visit. Very interesting and creative art, generally seemed to be revolving around a water theme. We then visited the permanent exhibitions on the upper floors of the state house. Again some very interesting and singular pieces of art. It is worth at least and hour of your time and it was free.
