This is a must just for the fact that it is the only State Capitol building that is round. However, the art and sculptures that fill the statehouse are quite impressive. It is a must when visiting Santa Fe.

I did not expect this! Beautiful architecture, wonderfully informed docent Crystal, and the art, the ART!!! Better than some of the museums. Really after 2 hours did not have the time to see more but would definitely return for more.

Wow! I thought I'd be taking a quick look at the lobby (didn't know about the art) and ended up spending over two hours looking at the wonderful collection of New Mexico contemporary art. The wheel-shaped building is perfect for displaying these treasures. There is...More

This is among the coolest capitals I have ever visited. Lots of artwork on display, the senate and house chambers are well-appointed. Worth a visit

This capitol building contains an amazing art collection representing many New Mexico artists. Check out the buffalo head made of found fragments of cloth, plastics and tin. You are able to wander into the state rooms and even the various offices. A smart, modern building.

Bring a camera. The senate floor is beautiful. Every hallway is filled with interesting art work. The people could not be friendlier and invite you to shoot pictures.

One of the ugliest state capitals I’ve seen. Bland and ugly. It should be bulldozed. With all the restrictions on building in Santa Fe, they would allow this monstrosity.

Visited during a rain storm, and amazed to find wonderful art displays on 3 floors. Loved our peaceful time there.

Self-guided tours, but plenty of information is provided. More akin to an art museum than a capitol building

A credit to Sante Fe and the people of New Mexico. The capitol complex is magnificently and immaculately maintained. The artwork is refreshing. The staff are knowledgeable and rightly proud,

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!
