California State Capitol Museum, Sacramento Reviews

  • So much history here! The tour was amazing very well organized and will executed. Easy walkthrough you get to see a lot of exciting rooms where the legislation process takes place. The history of the building is discussed during the guided tour the influence of the architecture l, the decor is all reviewed. Parking was easy to find on the streets, I would recommend going during the week. There's a gorgeous lawn to have a picnic on nearby. Don't hesitate to venture off on your own there are a lot of things to see.

  • Wear a Jacket-as it will always be cold inside, even if it's over 100% outside. Staff that handles the medal-detectors are very professional, courteous, and hospitable. Restaurants are open on the weekends. There are cameras everywhere, even if you don't see them. Protection/security is second to none. Free to get in. Enjoy!

  • This is a must see for Californians and visitors to California. The Capitol has numerous exhibits inside that showcase California history, and the Capitol library often has new exhibits, such as the history of the California Highway Patrol. The Capitol Mall has many shady trees to relax under and monuments to California, such as the Fallen Firefighters Memorial and Fallen Police Officers. There are many great restaurants and attractions nearby, including Old Sacramento. Definitely stop to visit. It's free and educational.

  • Well worth a visit. Get some history of California and check out the building itself. There is also a cafe and gift store downstairs. Park a few blocks away and walk along the tree lined streets of California’s Capitol City. It’s an impressive sight from outside as well. Entrance is on both sides of the building and there is security screening before you’re allowed in. Once in there you can roam around freely and do as to please. The view down towards tower bridge is a great photo opportunity if you climb the stairs all the way up to the 3rd floor.

  • Beautiful white building in a beautiful park setting. This was my second time visiting the Capitol and I've yet to do a full tour. To do a full tour I believe is free. A awesome place to take the whole family, it's packed with history and artifacts. We walked there from our hotel so I'm not sure about where to park. There is only one thing although everything around the Capitol seems peaceful be aware of your surroundings, the park has a few vagrants and opportunist so just keep an eye on your things and go during a time that everyone is out and about avoid going to downtown Sacramento alone at night.
