Our group had an interesting guided tour within the State House.Learning of it's origins. The legislature was not in session so we were able to go into the chambers and had a docent explain the workings of the Legislators. The rotunda was impressive and the main lobby featured art works of New Mexico artists throughout the hallways.

Visit the New Mexico State Capitol (Roundhouse) just to see all of the artwork displayed on all the various levels. My favorite is the buffalo head made from recycled materials

We add a stop at the State Capitol for out-of-town visitors. The New Mexico capitol building simply isn't what most folks have in mind when they think of a capitol complex. It is wonderful that Santa Fe and New Mexico have labored to maintain a historic district with only pueblo and territorial architecture.

The grounds are lovely to walk around. We enjoyed sitting on the benches basking in the warm August sun. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Old Santa Fe so it might be worth parking there and walking as parking is quite limited in the downtown area.

The Capitol building was open to the public even on Memorial Day. We had it nearly to ourselves as we wandered the halls. The art displayed in this one building rival many art museums.

What an amazing capitol building and so unique. Take at least an hour to walk around and see the house and senate rooms, the beautiful art work along the hallways and in other rooms.

First time in the State Capitol in awhile, has a beautiful rotunda, and you can see where the legislature meets, in addition to the beautiful artwork. They also give tours. Also notice the beautiful artwork throughout the building.

My visit to this stately and beautiful capitol building was a bit of a surpsise. It is a truly beautiful and beautifully designed building. The legislature was in session which made it more interesting.

We stopped by the capitol on our way to Colorado. We only meant to spend a brief time at the capitol. We stayed about 4 hours in all. It is really pretty and interesting. We enjoyed the paintings.

Thank Neva T
