Great overall history of Santa Fe with specific details highlighted. The original capitol building in the oldest state capitol in the U.S. Many alterations/rebuilding over the years so no attempt to rebuild to an earlier time but pieces of the history highlighted throughout the structure....More

I thought this place would be a recreation of the palace of the governors but it is not at all. It is a museum of the historical items and events regarding Santa Fe. Be sure not to miss the free tours they give, it make...More

This seems like a "must do," but despite the documented authenticity of these vendors, I am always a bit uneasy buying anything of great value. What if you have a problem? That being said, the vendors are appreciative of their customers, and more than happy...More

A great spot for an afternoon walk and checking out locally crafted Native American jewelry. Each day there are different vendors. Worth spending an hour or so when in downtown Santa Fe.

Buy jewelry and other handmade things directly from the makers. My wife got a gorgeous turquoise and silver necklace and I got a handsome money clip. Everyone we met was lovely!

We were not sure we wanted to spend time here but so glad we did. The history is fascinating. The building itself is amazing. Take the time to visit

A great place to spend a few hours, the building is beautiful and the displays are very interesting. The staff are very informative so put this on your list of places to visit.

This is where Santa Fe became the famous Santa Fe. This 400 year old building has a museum inside as well as the well-known native Americans selling their handmade jewelry under the shady front porch. Fun, informative.

From the low to very pricey works of art and jewelry, the local artisans show their wares every day through about 5pm. Most take credit cards. The price, is the price, no tax.

Bargaining is a bit of a lost art. Negotiating a price that you are willing to pay and one that the seller is willing to accept needs to be done respectfully. The potential buy never knows for sure what price the seller... More

Hi Gigi. Every time we've visited, the vendors have been there. Most start packing up in the afternoon around 4:30, a few stay until their ride picks them up. One of the vendors told me there is a bus most of them ride... More

The space is packed every day with the local vendors selling a wide variety of items. They are very friendly and it is fun to talk with them about their histories and knowledge of the area.
