TOMORROW: California State Archives Offers Free Behind-the-Scenes
SACRAMENTO - The State Archives will provide a free guided tour of their collections documenting California’s rich history and state government during the month of January. 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 Each guided tour provides a close encounter with the Archives’ one-of-a-kind historical documents and behind-the-scenes views of the preservation and imaging labs and free admission to its Exhibit Gallery.
Come early and enjoy the Archives’ newest exhibit, Alfred Eichler: Art and Architecture in the Golden State, featuring the work of long-time state architect Alfred Eichler. The exhibit is located in our 4th Floor Gallery and is open 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Archives tour begins promptly at 10:00 a.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. return.
This is a free, but ticketed event.
