Event Details

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. February's tour will feature highlights from our collection that celebrate Black History Month! 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 Each guided tour provides a close encounter with the Archives’ one-of-a-kind historical documents, a behind the scenes look at the preservation and imaging labs, and free admission to its Exhibit Gallery.

Our tours begin promptly at 10am and last approximately one hour.  Late arrivals may not be accommodated and may be asked to rebook.  As parking downtown can be challenging, please give yourself ample time to find parking.  We encourage questions and tours sometimes go over an hour, so please ensure that your metered parking allows an 11:30am return.
