Looking for a “cool” encounter with California history?

 Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the California State Archives!

 (And, yes, our stacks are kept year-around at a brisk 68 degrees)

 State Archives staff will provide a FREE guided tour of our collections documenting California’s rich history and state government. The State Archives’ collections of historic records include more than 100 million documents, 20,000 maps and architectural drawings, 250,000 photographs and thousands of video and audio recordings. Each guided tour provides a close encounter with the Archives’ one-of-a-kind historical documents and behind-the-scenes views of the preservation and imaging labs.

 Our tours begin at 12:00 noon and last approximately one hour.
