General Info & Tours

Visiting California’s seat of government is a memorable experience enhanced by a guided tour of the historic State Capitol. After the re-opening of the restored California State Capitol in 1982, California State Parks began offering tours of both the historic State Capitol building and Capitol Park.

The Capitol Museum’s tour office is located on the lower level of the Capitol building in room B-27. The museum offers free tours to individuals and groups of nine or fewer. Reservations are required for larger groups. Guided tours go out daily on the hour. Visitors are also welcome to take their own, self-guided tours.

Building tours include interpretive information on the historic offices, legislative chambers, and artwork in addition to the Capitol’s unique history and architecture. Capitol Park tours are available upon request for the 40-acre park, which includes a World Peace Rose Garden, plantings from around the world, and significant memorials and monuments.

On the first floor, visitors can view several inspiring revolving exhibits and restored historic rooms. A theater on the lower level presents several interpretive films.
