FOR PLANNING PURPOSES
March 22, 2018
In honor and celebration of Women's History Month, the State Archives will provide a FREE guided tour of their collections, focusing on the contributions women have made throughout California's history. 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 Each guided tour provides a close encounter with the Archives’ one-of-a-kind historical documents, a behind the scenes look at the preservation and imaging labs, and free admission to its Exhibit Gallery.
Archives tours begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., lasting approximately one hour. As parking downtown can be challenging, please give yourself ample time to find parking. Questions are encouraged and tours sometimes go over an hour, so please ensure that your metered parking allows an 11:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. return.
This is a free, but ticketed event.
