New Mexico State Capitol
Built in 1966, this government center is shaped like the Zia symbol, and is known as the Round House. The four-story building houses government offices and the state House and Senate chambers. From the ground floor, you can enter the rotunda and see the state seal and rotating art exhibits that are often on display. The visitors center is also located on this floor. On the fourth floor, the Governors Gallery offers more works of art. Take a free, self-guided tour during the week, or call to make an appointment for a guided tour.
I didn't know about the State Capitol until I was on a walking tour (I highly recommend A Boot About Santa Fe) and was told there is an art collection here worth over $5 million. Just up the street from the San Miguel Mission you will find the Capitol. You can just walk in and enjoy the fantastic art collection on 3 floors; the business of the government is going on at the same time and you may run into officials going to a meeting while you are staring down from the top floor. There is no admission charge and no guards follow you around. Be sure to check out the grounds, the architecture of the building (no dome on this capitol) and the statues which surround it. Don't miss this treasure.
