To sign up for a public tour, please visit Room B-27 in the lower level (basement) of the Capitol. There are signs and docents to direct you. Tours leave on the hour, beginning at 9 am; the last tour leaves at 4 pm. You do need to sign up for the tour. I recommend signing up at least 15 minutes before the tour leaves. If your group consists of ten or more people, you will need to call ReserveCalifornia at 1-866-240-4655 in advance. If you desire, you can take a self-guided tour, although I recommend picking up a map of the building first. If you visit on a weekday, you can enter at the north (L St), south (N St), or east entrance. On weekends and holidays, only the south entrance is open. Once you're on the grounds, if you need directions to the tour office, please call our information desk at 1-916-324-0333. We hope you enjoy your visit!

We were there on a Saturday afternoon and as others have said there were 2 docents there to give you information on tours and advice on where to start. Everyone there was very helpful. We pretty much took the tour at our own pace unguided and we enjoyed ourselves reading all the plaques with each room's history as we went along. There is also a room dedicated to the state's first library and there is a docent there as well to talk to you and give you information. Be sure to check it out.

As you are approaching the front of the Capitol just go to the right side of the building and you will see the visitors entrance. There are also signs directing you there. There is no pre registration required and there is no cost.

If you don't have the time for a tour, it's a great experience just to drop in for an hour and walk yourself around the main areas. But, don't miss it!

You can sign up for tours on the bottom floor in the tour office. Also, there is a docent in the rotunda to guide you or you can ask any of the officers stationed throughout the Capitol building.

Just go to the tour office. Our weekend tour took us into the upper and lower houses, rooms you could not access individually because there wasn't sufficient staff.
