"California State Capitol" California State Capitol Tip by derats

California State Capitol, Sacramento: 23 reviews and 40 photos

  California State Capital
by derats

Closely resembling a scale model of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., the beautiful, domed California state capitol was built in 1869 and massively renovated in 1976. Sacramento's most distinctive landmark, the capitol has been the stage of many important political dramas in California history. The 1-hour guided tours provide insight into both the building's architecture and the workings of the government it houses. Note: Security has gotten much tighter since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, so be prepared to show some identification.

Daily 9am-5pm. Tours offered every hour on the hour until 4pm
