Description

The California State Capitol Museum is the working State Capitol of the California. Many of the offices have been restored in the older part of the building so the public can see how politics were conducted years ago. The newer part of the building holds the offices of the current representatives, political appointees, and all other employees who help keep this state running. The public is pretty much free to wander down most halls and view a working government.

The State Capitol has been the home of the California Legislature since 1869. Since that time the State Capitol underwent a major renovation that restored much of the building's original look. Today, the restored historic offices of the Secretary of State, Treasurer, and Governor of the State of California are open for visitors to tour. Visitors may also have the chance to watch current day legislators debate a bill or cast a vote.

The State Capitol building is open weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm and weekends from 9 am to 5 pm. It's closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Admission is free. Free public tours are conducted everyday, on the hour, from 9 am to 4 pm.

The gardens on the grounds in the surrounding Capitol Park are amazing, open to the public, and free! There are numerous moving memorials, trees from around the world, a beautiful rose garden, a small pond, and wide walking paths. Be sure to include time to wander the gardens in your visit to the State Capitol.
