Capitol Building, Washington D.C.: 169 reviews and 429 photos


The US Capital building is open to free tours. If you contact your congressman he/she will send you passes to a more indepth look at how the government operates.Your congressman can also send you VIP passes to the White House - but plan ahead - it takes months to get them. Give your congressman at least 6 months notice!
