“Contact your congressman for a private tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

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.

“travel light and bring no food or liquids.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

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.

“Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

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.
