U.S. Capitol Building, Washington D.C.: 34 reviews and 48 photos

  A Fantastic Free Tour
by lmkluque

Favorite thing: While in the Capitol building, you must not stray from your tour group or you might, get lost and you might have to walk a long, long way to get a pass from your senator!

The tour of the Capitol was free and there are other free tours/sites that help to make a visit to D.C. affordable.

An example is the Smithsonian Institution which is the largest museum and research complex in the world. There are nineteen galleries and museums as well as the National Zoological Park. No matter what you're interested in, there is probably something you will enjoy. Check out their List to see which would be good for you.

Other free options can be found at the National Park's Travel Itinerary
