The Palace of the Governors is one of the oldest and most historic buildings in Santa Fe. It dates back to the early 1600's and was the seat of the Spanish colonial government.


Now it is a museum. There are exhibts from  back in the old days, including a real old-fashioned stagecoach.


"I would like to come back to the museum to look and explore more exhibits."

"Was the Palace ever someone's real home?"
