The "Round House" is both the seat of state government, the symbolic heart of the city's capitol district. Designed to represent a Zia sun symbol when viewed aerially, the building was built in 1966 and houses the state legislature. It's also a tribute to New Mexico's artist culture, displaying works by living and late NM artists.
- 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.
