California State Capitol Museum State Park

Overview
Home of the California Legislature since 1869, the State Capitol underwent a major renovation completed in 1981 that restored much of the Capitolís original look. The museum features exhibits, tours, a gift shop - and possibly an opportunity to watch the legislators debate a bill or cast a vote. For more information- including virtual tours- see http://statecapitolmuseum.ca.gov or call (916) 324-0333. For tour reservations call (866) 240-4655.

Exhibits/Programs
Much of the restored Capitol is physically accessible, including the restrooms. Elevators provide access to different floors including the gloriously restored Senate and Assembly, where lucky visitors may on occasion watch legislators in action. Free tours are available daily, but visitors must sign up for them. Sign up in Basement Room B-27 weekdays or at the Information Desk in the first floor Rotunda (historic wing) weekends. Assistive listening devices are available for tours. A captioned video presentation and the museum store are also available on the ground floor. See the State Capitol Museum web pages link above for virtual tours and much more information.
