Book a Tour of the State Capitol

Welcome to California! The State Capitol serves as both a museum and the state's working seat of government. Visitors to the Capitol can at once experience California's rich history and witness the making of history through the modern lawmaking process.

Planning to visit the Capitol in person? Find out more about tour times, building security, parking, how to get here, and other information related to planning your exploration of the Capitol by contacting our Capitol Office. We are more than happy to arrange a tour of the Capitol for you, your family, or class when visiting Sacramento.
