Tips for Families

Reserve a tour by emailing your Congressman or Senator. It’s a great way to skip the line. Also, pay a visit to your Congressman or Senator before you visit the Capitol to pick up free gallery passes to watch Congressional proceedings when in session (passes are good for up t two years).

Tips for Families

It is very much a "stick with the group" kind of tour so little ones might be hard to keep interested. We climbed stairs a few times, so strollers would definitely be an issue too.
