No matter if you've visited the Capitol before, even if you've already toured, do it again. Always a joy to see this beautiful, historic site, enter the chambers, see the original Supreme Court courtroom, see where history is made.

security is very strict. We were visiting on a very hot and humid day and had to toss our water bottles and lunches it took us three tries to get past security they wouldn't even let us by with a store wrapped candy bar forgotten in the bottom of the back pack. You get a guided tour of 3 rooms on a very fast paced. The building is impressive and worth seeing even if you are being rushed through.The guide was pleasant and informative. It was also very crowded and loud so it could be difficult to hear the presentation even with the head sets provided.

We went on the tour of the Capitol building. This is a must when you visit Washington. Our tour guide was very interesting and entertaining.

The capital building is ornate and beautiful. Call your state's senator and try to get a private tour. It gets you a more personal experience.

No sign of Kevin Spacey but the capitol building does not fail to impress. We reserved tickets for the free guided tour the day before. The capitol is full if history; our guide was full of interesting facts and anecdotes. The architecture was unsurprisingly impressive and the rotunda was the undoubted highlight. My only disappointment was that we moved very quickly from one room to the next without getting a chance to have a look closely at some of the wonderful pieces in each room.
