Built on the image of the Washington Capitol, this imposing marble building is home to the senate and a public museum. Free tours are provided inside the California State Capitol Museum which feature not only art exhibitions but also the portraits of governors, artifacts and antiques and beautiful murals.

It is good that doesn't even take more than an hour, and being free, kids can also enjoy a bit of the tour. Who knows, you might even encounter Arnold Schwarzenegger and take a picture with him or ask for an autograph. :)

Address:
L St & 10th St, Sacramento, CA 95814, USA

Price:
Free.

Daily 10am-4pm.
