Great visit on the Veterans Memorial and inside the State Capital Bldg. rose gardens and statues are phenomenal! Must visit the halls of the Capital Bldg to see artifacts, photos and incorporated cities of California and what they're famous for.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Capitol, and learnt a lot about California and Sacramento. Worthwhile for both national and international visitors. Worth doing the tour.

The main floor features turn-of-the-20th-century restored offices with docent-led tours. The floors are of thousands of...More

The Exterior, Interior and Garden/Park are all significant and attractive. The rose garden and memorials beckon you to stroll through the well maintained grounds. There are trees over 100 years old. The exterior resembles the U. S. capitol building. The interior is welcoming (after passing...More
