Was instantly attracted to the outside of the building, being circular. Once inside you can check out lots of art, and definitely worth your time walking around.

We loved this building. ALL of the halls were filled with beautiful artwork. We even ran into the Gov. when looking at the art in her office.

Since it was Saturday, the building was locked but just walking around the outside was worth a stop. We parked in one of the government lots. The grounds are full of foliage and statues. It is a neat place.

I don't think we knew what to expect when we walked into the building. We don't normally go through many government buildings on our travels. It was early, and the guard helped us with a brochure. We walked around all the levels looking at the...More

Highly recommend visiting New Mexico History Museum -- and the State Capital building. Excellent art display. And it's free! Be very careful with the other museums. Some are disappointing.

I did not notice wheel chairs. There are adequate elevators and east access to the chamber so limited walking is required and no stairs to climb.

The best parking is across the street from the round house, I believe that is Galisteo street. That way you won't have to worry about feeding a meter. Enjoy your trip and Welcome to Santa Fe!
