SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California State Capitol Museum Volunteer Association (CSCMVA) is recruiting volunteers and taking applications to work as docents in the State Capitol Museum. To learn more about the important role of volunteers, and get an insider’s tour of the Capitol, interested adults (ages 18+) are encouraged to attend a drop-in Open House on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, from 1-3 p.m. at the State Capitol.

• Training classes will begin in the fall of 2023. The training will be a combination of in-person classes and remote learning via the computer. Training will take approximately four weeks, covering the Capitol’s historic rooms and the government function of the building.

• Volunteering at the Capitol is a unique and rewarding opportunity to meet the many visitors to the Capitol and share information about the architecture of the building, California history and view democracy in action.

Volunteer Open House attendees are not required to register in advance and should enter the north side of the Capitol to check-in on July 25.

To sign up for the Open House in advance (not required) or for more information about the opportunity, please contact Megan Stanley at or call (279) 789-4347. More information can be found at

The California State Capitol Museum Volunteer Association (CSCMVA) is a volunteer cooperating association partnering with the California State Parks to promote educational and interpretive activities of the California State Capitol Museum.
