Benicia Capitol State Historic Park is a great place for a walk or even to just pop in and say hi to the docents. Would definitely recommend to make a donation if you have a couple dollars to spare. This historic place is worth preserving. Such a treat to take the tour. Rich history, and wild stories are shared by the informative guides. It is truly a wonderful little piece of preserved California history. Restored building, original and recreated furniture in the Senate and Assembly chambers, good educational video shows the background history of the building, movement of the state capital and reasoning behind the movement. Only state house building still left besides state house in Sacramento. Located in historic downtown Benicia, worth the trip and 30 minute
Walking the grounds here is a special treat. The garden beds and old trees are so charming. The wisteria is breathtakingly beautiful when it's in bloom. Take the tour sometime, it's really good. The docents are really knowledgeable about the history of this place. Even if you don't take the tour, pop in and say hi. Maybe donate a couple bucks to them for the heck of it. Support this local treasure.
Took a trip and walked around Benicia one day. Never seen the old Capitol. Only had 2 dollars in my pocket. The Docent says were only open for 15 more minutes but he said the $2 was enough for us both. 2.50 each is the actual cost. This young man gave us the $100 dollar tour. It was spectacular and well worth the 2 dollars. It is a great piece of our history and the employees are awesome!
This was a great little historical stop. Very small place, so it can be done in a short amount of time. Also got a special tour of the house next-door and that was really interesting and the person that lead to tour was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Historic Benicia was awesome. Came originally for the car show for the high school and stayed to explore.
The museum was educational and reminded everyone that at one time, Benicia was the capital of California at one point. The docents were extremely nice and made the visit pleasant. Highlight of the visit was walking the small garden. Though it's in the middle of old Benicia, it's still quiet and calming.
