AAA Editor Notes
State Capitol, on 10th St. between L and N sts., was built between 1860 and 1874 and architecturally resembles the United States Capitol. The main building contains art exhibits, murals and statuary. Marble floors and the rotunda dome are highlights; murals depicting important events in California's history are at the base of the rotunda.

One-hour guided tours cover the renovated main building; the legislative chambers, where representatives' desks date from the 1860s; and several offices of state officials, including a 1906 re-creation of the governor's office suite. Limited gallery seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis when the legislature is in session. A 10-minute video presentation is shown in the basement theater.

Food is available.
