Ok, so I am from California and we have really tight security at our capital building. It wasn't here! We walked right in and wandered around. I even walked on to the senate and house floors! It may not look great on the outside but it is very pretty on the inside.
Not very different from other western capitol buildings, but very well kept, with native beauty and several interesting pieces of art.
