California State Capitol

This structure is designated on the National Register of Historic Places and is a California Historical Landmark.

The State Capitol building in Sacramento, California

For a first-hand look at California state government — past and present — visit the State Capitol. With construction completed in 1874, the building features turn-of-the-century architecture, including a 120-foot rotunda and period office displays. Now home to the governor and legislature, visitors can watch politics in action in the Senate and Assembly chamber galleries.

In addition, tours are conducted daily on the hour. The building itself is located in Capitol Park, 40 acres of tree-shaded lawns and gardens, also home to several notable memorials, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
